Ability to disable CED Component Name mapping to the WTPART Ref Designator in Windchill

Ability to disable CED Component Name mapping to the WTPART Ref Designator in Windchill

Reference Designator fields are populated with CED component names in the WTPart Structure.  Because of this automation, CAD driven WTPart Structure may not be obtainable if there are too many characters in the Ref Designator.  Our ERP only allows 10 characters, so any Ref Designator that is longer than 10 characters creates ESI errors when the information is transferred to the ERP System. 

See attached Article CS211407 for a similar PTC case (SolidWorks Example)

 

In the attachment named CAD_Structure, you can see the CAD Component Name displayed

In the attachment named WTPart_Structure, you can see the Reference Designator displayed (populated from Component Name)

 

Requesting to have a hidden preference ("set.component.name=no") enabled in the wgmclient.ini for CED Modeling to disable this behavior.

This preference is already enabled for Inventor and Solidworks.
