Regenerate question

When I regenerate my assembly, I get a warning at the bottom of the screen stating;

"Cannot update placement of component(M198)"

Does anyone know how to find out what component is "M198". I don't have a part named M198, so I assume it's some kind of designator.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

August

Re: Regenerate question

Hi, try another 2 options in the search tool as in the picture above :

1. Go to "History" tab, look by ID = 198

2. If not found, in same History tab look by Feat Number = 198

If still not there (and given you have Yellow regen sign) - try to look by Status = Frozen.

Best,

Re: Regenerate question

Could you attach the assembly and the parts?

Re: Regenerate question

The assembly is huge. I can't attach it or the part, because I'm not sure what part is M198.

I thought it might symbolize a part in my assembly, but no parts have that name.

Re: Regenerate question

Inside the folder assembly, have you change manually the name of the part?

Re: Regenerate question

No, I've searched for M198 and there is no part named that in my assembly.

Re: Regenerate question

Has M198 in a different folder?

Are you using folders to simplify your assembly?

Re: Regenerate question

Have you tried using the "search tool". Set the "look for" feild to "component" and enter your value of "M198"SEARCH+TOOL.png

Re: Regenerate question

Send an image of the assembly components (the tree on your left side).

Re: Regenerate question

James,

I tried that and it can't find the component.

Any other suggestions? I'm getting a yellow circle at the bottom in regeneration manager.

Can you post a screen shot of the message log, with the error?
