Modelcheck configuration. CAD Common Name limit

Hello



we have been looking at Modelcheck configuration and could not figure out how we could configure it so that it throws a warning (ie does not prevent users to check in) if NAME (PDM Name, ie ProE Common Name) is longer than a fixed length of characters.

Is it actually possible to do so in ModelCheck and if so how ?



Thanks a lot


Best regards

This is what we used for part file name checking.

PRT_MODEL_NAME EQ ALL_NUMBERS
PRT_MODEL_NAME EQ LENGTH_8

You can find the list of allowed checks in the ModelCheck Help Topic Collection manual.


In Windchill, you need to set up MC_Err attribute on the EPMDocument type to be 0. This will allow 0 error ModelChecked parts only to be saved.

Hello everyone

just some feedback.

We ended creating a parameter (undesignated) and a relation with PTC_WM_NAME

we can trigger the error when the length is greater than 40 (thanks SAP !!!) but as it happens we also check other parameters for various reason and we found out that the same MC propriety applies. That is we have either an error or warning for all parameters check. In other word we only wanted to add a warning for the Name length but we can't since we have already enable MC to return an Error for checking parameters. The other option is to change the option to Warning but this will mean letting people having the possibility to ignore the warning for other parameters and check in the CAD file.

That's life world is not perfect.

Thanks all for your help
