So the topic of materials has been discussed before in this forum, but I'm not sure there has been a solution I've been happy with. I was hoping someone can share their amazing idea on materials management that I haven't thought of. Here is the basic wish list - somehow connect between WindChill and Creo:
The goal is to not have the user edit the materials and finish 3 different times for three different places. Even if you don't have a magical solution to do all of this, if you have something that is 'unique' and you are proud of, I would love to hear it!
Just a partial solution:
We keep our Creo material library in Windchill. All Creo users have a config setting that point them to the Windchill directory.
We've designated the material parameter in Creo, so that it comes into Windchill on the Model, as well as the WTPart.
Hopefully that gets you to a good start!
Thank you. I was thinking about it. The problem is that there is still no linkage between the note in the drawing, the finish in the drawing, those values in WindChill and parametrically changing them. For instance, if you want the note verbiage to change in all of your drawings, you can't edit the .mtl file that would do that (as far as I know).
