Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

Hi, everyone,

 

As it seems that there is not much help on

Drawing Program

, I decided  to open up a new discussion about this.

What I know until now:

- the documentation of Creo 4.0 (I use Creo 2.0- does anyone where I can find that?)

Creo Parametric Help Center

-the fact that

  • A drawing program can only have up to 80 characters per line.
  • Characters input beyond 80 will be automatically truncated
  • Line continuation characters are not accepted by drawing program

(courtesy of Tom that pointed me to this: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS34738#_ga=1.116686790.1914719267.14906157... )

So, the question is:

Is there any Tutorial and/or Hands-On Workshop for Drawing Program?

as I found for the Pro/PROGRAM:

Tutorial: Pro/PROGRAM Primer

Pro/PROGRAM Tutorial

https://d2t1xqejof9utc.cloudfront.net/files/13343/Pro_Program_HOW.pdf?.. with the models files downloaded from here:

how to use pro/prgram in ptc creo or proe wilfire 5.0 - GrabCAD

 

I will start searching for something similar to update the discussion.

Keep in touch,

Nic.

Hi, Vladimir.

I checked: there's nothing there.

Do you have some experience with Drawing Program?

Nic.

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

It's such a shame that there is no knowledge about Drawing Program.

It's such a powerful tool!! And with Pro/PROGRAM could bring a lot of opportunities to an automated process in drawing.

I started to play with and I was very pleased of what it can do.

I tried to place a Symbol in one of the states and I couldn't find how. I know you can create detailed instances like the dimensions, notes and balloons but

I haven't found how to create/insert a Symbol in a View State.

I used the Help to find how's done:

To Create Detail Items in a Drawing State

To create detail items such as dimensions, notes, and balloon notes in a drawing state, choose Create from the DWG COMMANDS menu that appears when you click Tools > Drawing Program > Define States > Create State > Record Cmds. Items that you create in one state are not visible in any other state or outside of the drawing program.

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

if you just want to add, say for example a cloud symbol, to a view or part or whatever that is embedded in a state, then i think I have a solution for you.

Is that what you are looking to do?

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

yes. a symbol with a text in it for example. so I change the language, it will be a different state with a different symbol with the new language. More simply put: a cloud symbol that I could see in a particular View State

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

okay great.

create a state > create a note in that state.

Video Link : 7810

Will this work?

edit:    is that video working?

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

The video is working.

I have to study to understand.

So, basically, you create the custom symbol thru a note?

I will study it tomorrow.

Thank you,

nic.

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

Yeah so if it was a cloud symbol just do &sym(cloud)

or if it is a banana symbol do &sym(banana)

banana seems to be my go to for examples

Re: Drawing Program User Guide, Tutorial and Hands-On Workshop

and all the custom symbols have to be in a directory defined in config.pro? so the system could find it?
