Workgroupmanager: change LoadType of an assembly (Creo Elements Direct Modeling)

Workgroupmanager: change LoadType of an assembly (Creo Elements Direct Modeling)

In Modelmanager and Modeling you can change the load types to full, structure, partial and lightweight.

When you are working with Windchill and Modeling, then you can change the load type using the function "Open from Windchill". But in this UI you can only search for filenames and not for attributes (IBA's).

Workaround is to search then filename by attributes in wgm and the open the dialog “Open from Windchill” in Modeling and select the load type.

 

In wgm itself the load type can only be defined in wgmclient.ini. This cannot be changed dynamically in a wgm session.

 

There are 2 approaches to get a better usability:

  1. Search ability for IBA’s should be implemented in “Open from Windchill” UI
  2. Change of load type in wgm should be available

 

Many of our customers are plant designers and they have very big assemblies.The change of the load type is essential for them because the time to load the assemblies with load type “full” is in most cases very high.
