Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

Does anyone have a listing of options that can be put in the syscol.scl color file? we are moving from WF4 to Creo 2.

 

One of the technicians at PTC stated that their isn't any documentation.

 

Thanks in advance,

Lance Lie

Re: Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

The technician is right. I once put in a support case to find information on some options I found in the file and I never received a comprehensive response.

The one that stood out was the pre-wf option at the top of my custom settings.

This is the file I use to have pretty much the original Pro|E settings.

However, there are times when this is ignored if you are working with rendering scenes.

It might not be perfect for you, but it's good for starters.

Btw could you post your SCL file here once you are done with adjustments?

Re: Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

What are these "alias" things?... and are those all the UI options, Jakub? ...and where did you find them

Re: Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

I changed the sketcher weak dimension color from the light grey to light blue (same as Geometry, Centerline and Construction ) so users can see them better. I also set sketcher background color to straight black, not blended.

SYSTEM_BACKGROUND_COLOR 0.000000 0.000000 0.000000

ALIAS_SEC_DIM_WEAK_COLOR_TO SYSTEM_SECTION_COLOR

Reason for therse changes is because back in WF4 the dimensions had a black box around them which made it really easy to see when working with shaded models.

Re: Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

Nice, thanks for posting the code.

One question. Have you been able to set the color of curves from dark blue to something else, and also save these changes to the SCL file?

@Tom

These Alias things are good for making datums easily recognizable, or at least that's kind of how I use them.

The UI options I am not sure if they even work anyhow. Propably in WF4 they do, but as far as Creo is concerned, I dunno.

And where did I find them? Good question. I guess it's one of many things that hit me while trying to set up Creo.

Re: Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

PTC really should document these things when they run across them. How hard can it be?

I can change the curve color under geometry. The trick is that when you go from a default color scheme to a custom one, it tries to pick up your latest custom color file and overwrites your changes. You have to blank out that custom color file path from the UI.

SYSTEM_CURVES_COLOR 100.000000 100.000000 100.000000

Re: Creo 2 Parametric Syscol.scl file options

I doubt PTC is gonna run across these things. Or anyone who can alter the help files in particular.

Hmm, what do you mean by "blank out that custom collor file path from the UI"?

I know I can change the color of curves, but once I store this change to the SCL file, and rerun Creo with it being loaded automatically, the curves just change back to default dark blue color.
