Did you know about custom mapkeys

Electrode designers may have a lot of use for mapkeys that automate repetitive tasks in Creo. But in big companies the configuration will probably be copied on start of Creo from a server and overwrite any unsaved changes. SMARTElectrode offers a little help for this case:

If option load_default_mapkeys is set to yes, SMARTElectrode will add mapkey.pro from directory configuration to the current session.

All additional mapkeys can be saved to this file and will be available on the next start of SMARTElectrode

There are already some mapkeys created for easier access to some features and saved orientations.

 

Mapkeys for SMARTElectrode commands

  • ea - activate electrode
  • ec - copy electrode to new model
  • ee - evaluate/check electrode
  • en - add new electrode
  • ep - open electrode properties
  • er - assemble electrode again on different position
  • es - add smart electrode (see also Did you know about quick extraction in SMARTElectrode)

 

Mapkeys for SMARTElectrode orientations

SMARTElectrode stores a number of orientations after definition of the operation csys. The mapkeys for orientations can be easily used if the keyboard includes a separate num-block.
