Creo Version accessable via relation

I would like to be able to store the version of Creo used to create a model within its parameters (i.e. "CREO v3 F000").

 

The overall intent is to push that parameter into PDM Link so that a user could tell if the Creo file will be readable by their locally installed version of Creo.

Yes, I would like to know this too.

I have the version listed with an notation note on the flat to screen plane within manufacturing files, but at the moment, I control it by a parameter, which I have to manually update.

Having this as an automatic feature would be useful.

Hi, you can do this with modelcheck

Re: Creo Version accessable via relation

Just to be clear, according to PTC Support:

"This information can be found with ModelCHECK but I am not sure if it can be called out directly in a drawing.  However, if it can, it will be displayed in the format as seen as the top of a model file when viewed in a text editor: “3200 2011190.”  3200 is the release and 2011190 is the datecode.  You would then need a relation which converts this to the format of Creo Parametric 1.0 datecode F000." - CASE REF: 12197528

I'd hate to have to create a huge relation to convert that value to the more user-friendly value. 

I suppose you might be able to have ModelCheck set a parameter's value based off the ModelCheck configuration but that would require altering the ModelCheck's configuration everytime you deploy a new version of the software.

I am open to suggestions but I'd really prefer a solution that is simple and sustainable.

Thanks for the comment!

I dont think you need to write any relations or change any modelcheck settings between each version/datecode to manage this.

Simply create a common modelcheck that adds a string parameter to the model with the current Creo version/datecode that was active when the check was performed.

If you want to display this value in any drawing/format, then just call this parameter from there.
