The same method I used previously can be used to more complex jobs. Here is a mapkey I made to replace the model of a drawing with just a few clicks. Just tested in Creo 2.
Open just the drawing in memory and call mapkey "rm", then select a new model and press "resume". That's it
Edit: just attached a Creo 3 version.
Please explain, what i need to do with the file replace_model_CREO_3.pro?
Where i should put it? And what are the next steps?
Thank you in advance
Open the file with a text editor, copy/paste the text into your config.pro.
Restart Creo and follow the instructions:
Open a drawing, call mapkey "rm", then select a new model and press "resume".
It's a little bit long mapkey that does all the manual work for you, these are the steps (from what I remember now):
1 - Capture drawing name
2 - Capture original model name
3 - Asks to select a new model and captures its name
4 - Close everything and clears from memory
5 - Open new model and rename it to the old model ("just in session")
6 - Opens drawing
7 - Re-open model and renames it to original name("just in session")
8 - Open and save drawing
9 - Close everything and clears from memory
10 - Open drawing
It has been working for me, please give some feedback to know if it is working to you too
Have any of you tried this mapkey with CREO 3.0 M120? I am not sure if I am following the mapkey steps correctly because it does not work.
