For some reason when I start either the bolted connection generator or the shaft generator, the content center parts don't show up if I select "modify" to change the parts. For example: I wanted to create an axle with a retaining-ring-groove. I created the axle, and under Features I selected Retaining Ring.
Then a dialog shows up with some standard dimensions, and on the right under "Position" it says "ASME B 27.7M". When I click here, an empty dialogbox shows with filter "All" activated.
It should show all retaining rings available in the content center. The strange thing however is that when I exit this function and start the ordinary "Place from Content Center" command, I can see all retaining rings that are available (see pictures).
The same thing occurs when using the bolted connection generator. What's wrong and, more important, how can I solve this problem?
Thanks in advance for your tips and solutions.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I suppose you retrieve the Content Center parts from a Vault Server.
If this is the case, there is an hot fix for the Vault Server that solves the problem, as explained in the blog post below.
I hope it helps.
Alessandro, thanks! I applied the hotfix, and it works!
