piping line stock in windchill folder

Hi,

 

I would like to maintain the same piping line stock throughout the company and thought a good place would be to keep it in Windchill. I was able to place it in WCH but "looking" for it in the piping module, I cannot see it in WCH. Any idea on how to get this working? Or is it not possible and do I have to resort to keeping common line stocks in a "normal" server location?

Hi,

 

The directory to the linestock files can be controlled through the config.pro setting "pro_pip_lnstk_dir". The path to the Windchill directory should be some variety of: 

wtpub://<WINDCHILL_NAME>/Libraries/<LIBRARY_NAME>/<ANY_POSSIBLE_SUBFOLDERS>/

 

Let me know if that solves your issue.

Re: piping line stock in windchill folder

Thanks. This config option was set but I still couldn't see the files. 

 

The solution that I found was that it only works if the linestock is checked in to Windchill via Creo. Then it works fine.

 

I had previously checked it in using an external browser and also using the desktop integration. That did not give the file the correct file type in Windchill.  

Re: piping line stock in windchill folder

You're welcome! It makes sense it would need to be checked in via Creo's Windchill. I had a similar issue with getting .SPL files for cabling checked-in recently. Any external files like these need to be checked-in via Creo. If you check these files in with the Windchill browser they just come in as a generic Document type.
