Creo Schematics - Autogenerate New Design defaults

Can anyone tell me how (or if) I can set a start template to use when with Autogenerate New Design?

Also how I could use either command line or desktop shortcuts to use a certain start template. Basically I want one for our working central catalog and another used as a test environment.

Re: Creo Schematics - Autogenerate New Design defaults

You could create your design template with all you default pathways, switches, central catalog, default template, and UI set. Copy the config files out to the network, ie creo_schematics.bin, config.dat, mapkey.dat. Then write a .bat file that sets the Enviroment variables and copies the config files to the local user. Point your shortcut to the .bat file

Hi,

  • Autogenerate new design create new design according to the setting used last time to create new design on the same session, it always use random design name (Des-####).
  • If you like to create shortcut for creation of design using certain start template, you can record short trail which create design based on the required template and use custom command to place it on the Ribbon. Just make sure to use auto-generated design names.

Regards,

Gaby

Re: Creo Schematics - Autogenerate New Design defaults

it is nice solution, but it won't help if you use different template in the session and try to then to autogenerate new design, since Autogenerate new design create new design according to the setting used last time to create new design on the same session.

using trail file wich create new desing will provide consistance behvior since the template name is recorded in the trail.

in addition, in order to facilitate administration and sharing of user interface information, an administrator can configure Creo Schematics to retrieve customization settings from a central location (it is available since creo 2.0). for more info refer to topic "About Creo Schematics System Default Files" in the help center.

this solution can be safer as it does not require any editing of batch file or copying of system files . in addition it can be used across the organization. (create trail which use template from specific location (shared location), create custom command which run this trail, by using the UI_CUST_ADMIN_DIR you can place the command on the ribbon for all the users in the organization)
