Simplified representation in parts using Pro/TOOLKIT

Simplified representation in parts using Pro/TOOLKIT

Hello,

there ist a note in the tkuse.pdf for Wildfire 4.0 that
Pro/TOOLKIT supports simplified representations of assemblies only, not parts?


Really???


Is there no way to create and define a simplified representation for parts?



Thanks,


greetings Lars

Simplified representation in parts using Pro/TOOLKIT

According to the documentation that is correct. Through Pro/TOOLKIT you cannot define a simprep for a part.

Function ProSimprepCreate

Description


Creates a simplified representation based on the supplied data.
NOTE:
Operates on assemblies only, not parts.

Synopsis

#include <prosimprep.h<prosimprep_h.html>>

ProError<protoolkiterrors_h.html#proerror>

ProSimprepCreate

(


ProSolid<proobjects_h.html#prosolid> p_solid


/* (In)


The solid in which to create the simplified representation


*/


ProSimprepdata<prosimprepdata_h.html#prosimprepdata>* p_data


/* (In)


The data for the simplified representation


*/


ProSimprep<proobjects_h.html#prosimprep>* p_new_rep


/* (Out)


The handle to the new simplified representation


*/

)

Hello Patrick,

yes, I read the note.
But ProSimnrepCreate works on parts. 🙂


So I thought it might work...


Thanks Lars

Re: Simplified representation in parts using Pro/TOOLKIT

I need the same functionality.

How can we increase the relevance of this issue?

Re: RE: Simplified representation in parts using Pro/TOOLKIT

Hi, I think it is not supported but it may work. Actually  it could have the consequence that something / for example sections and x-hatching of the simplified parts  in the drawing view could not work or will lead to the wrong results. I could remember that there are some kind  of such side effects.

One alternative way for the simplified representation of parts is to  use substitute simplified representation of  components where the simplification is done via part family table.
