Use supplier content to author to CC

Status: New Idea
by Valued Mentor on ‎04-17-2013 09:02 PM

It's vert time consuming re-modelling supplier content for the CC, just to get the benefits of easily placement and Tube & Pipe runs.


Often the supplier has a full 3D file of CAD models, such as Ryco. Currently I have downloaded all of these (many thousands) and have 'saved as' to get into them ipt format. I have also authored/published many of them to the CC for Tube & Pipe environment.


My idea is to have a 'function' to load up a groupf of files and to use the existing models for the CC, without the need to re-model everything. How is this done? Buggered if I know. That's for the developers.
