Importing Vesys to Creo

We are trying to import a wiring harness design from Vesys into Creo to Route in Cabling, whenever I try to import an XML file I get this message. can anyone help, I presume we need some specific settings for export from vesys?

Re: Importing Vesys to Creo

XML is not a specific file format.  It can be anything using a "Mark up Language".  

A key item is what  Vesys is exporting.  If Vesys just says export XML, it probably a proprietary format for their use.  Look for options of other formats.

There are specific XML formats from Pro Diagram and Creo Schematics that Cabling can read.  There is also an older NWF (neutral wire format) that Cabling can read.   

 

NWF is very plain text.  It looks like"

Re: Importing Vesys to Creo

Are you using the Capital Harness / VeSYS Bridge to Creo to generate this XML? When you perform the import - are you selecting Applications-->Cabling-->Import-->Mentor Graphics??  If so... this is the problem. Instead, try choosing Applications-->Cabling-->Import-->Creo Schematics.

 

The Mentor Graphics import is intended for a different type of Mentor Graphics netlist file. It is not intended to import an XML file. However, the Creo Schematics options is intended to import an XML. If the VeSys Creo Bridge is being used, you should receive a valid XML file in Creo Schematics format.

 

Give that a try - and see if importing with the Import-->Creo Schematics option solves the problem.

 

Thanks!
