How come when I open my catalog editor there is nothing in there? I then did the path of
Solved! Go to Solution.
When I path to the files through my computer I can see the files just fine. When I go through catalog editor there is nothing shown. It is searching for .apc file. My tool pallets works fine and I can insert equipment from the catalog but when I open catalog editor to edit a part it does not give me anything to work with.
I am just looking to edit the size of a tank.
Did you open a catalog? It should open a .apc file. The default ones are located at C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\MEP 20XX\enu\MEPContent\USI\MvParts.
Once you do you should have lots of parts to edit depending on what the catalog contains.
Thanks for the response Keith! Ill attach a screen shot that should help.
My path to the folder from autocad mep 2015 is this:
I take the same path from my computer and the folder shows .dwg files but no .apc files.
window on the left is from autocad, window on the right is from my computer.
Also, there is no programdata folder in my c drive. I have to path to it manually in order to get it.
First go into your folder options and select the Show hidden files, folders, and drives. This will allow you to see the program data folder.
Second you are looking for the catalog file in the part file location. You will never find it there. A catalog is a container for all of your parts. You need to look in the folder location that I posted. Or if you are using your links then look in the C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\MEP 2015\enu\MEPContent\USI\MVParts. The catalog file will be located there.
