Assemblies in Creo Keep Changing to Reference Local Files Instead of Windchill Files

Hey All,

 

I keep having an issue when working on assemblies in Creo using Windchill. I will make an assembly by addign components from Windchill commonspace but for some reason (often when I have spend hours making the assembly) it will start referencing the local versions that it downloaded to my workspace instead of the files in the commonspace. I can see it happens because the Database Status goes from Download to New. 

 

How do I prevent this? Can I fix it if it's already happened?

 

Creo Parametric 5.0.3.0

Re: Assemblies in Creo Keep Changing to Reference Local Files Instead of Windchill Files

Creo will load files in a specific order when loading an assembly into seesion.

1) From another loaded in-session copy fo the component

2) from your local workspace

3) from Windchill commonspace

 

If you have loaded components into your working session and placed them in an assembly, if you add another copy of the component to your assembly, it will pull the copy from in session memory.

 

It is very important to learn and understand the rules that govern part file loading.

This also applies to loading an as-saved vs a load-latest assembly.

 

If switching between multiple assemblies, it may be beneficial to erase from memory between assembly models.
