Elango,

I did a simple test in Creo Parametric 2.0. Name of the part can have up to 31 characters (no Family Table inside the part).

Examples:

--------------

a234567890a234567890a2345678901.prt.1 ... visible in File > Open dialog box

a234567890a234567890a2345678901.prt.11 ... visible in File > Open dialog box

a234567890a234567890a2345678901.prt.111 ... visible in File > Open dialog box

a234567890a234567890a2345678901.prt.1111 ... visible in File > Open dialog box

a234567890a234567890a2345678901.prt.11111 ... visible in File > Open dialog box

a234567890a234567890a2345678901.prt.111111 ... not visible in File > Open dialog box

Elango,

As Martin mentioned in last replay 31 character is the limit of file name, I would like to add some more information about files (from Creo help).

About Creo Parametric Files

The following requirements apply when creating and performing operations on Creo Parametric files:

  • File names have a 31 character limit. You cannot create or retrieve an object with more than a 31 character file name.
  • You cannot use brackets, such as [ ], { }, or ( ), spaces and punctuation marks (.?!;) in file names.
  • File names can contain hyphens and underscores, however, the first character in a file name cannot be a hyphen.
  • Use only alphanumeric characters (see hyphen and underscore exception in previous bullet) in file names. Object files containing non-alphanumeric characters (such as @, #, and %) in their names do not display in, and are not retrievable from dialog boxes. You cannot save new object files with nonalphanumeric characters in their names.
  • Use only lowercase characters for file names. An object or file on disk always saves with the name in lowercase.
  • Directory paths can use special characters, such as tilde ( ~ ) and two periods ( .. ) to specify relative paths. It is better, however, to always show the absolute path names (from the root) to avoid problems if you change working directories or use the same configuration file in another startup directory.
  • A directory path can contain up to 260 characters.

File Format

Saving an object to disk creates a file with the following format: object_name.object_type.version_number

For example, if you create and then save the part bracket, the filename for the part is bracket.prt.1.

Regarding Purge:

Check existing post Purging in 3.0 , it is applicable for Creo 2.0 as well.
