I am using Design Assitant to rename files, but have had no luck with other referenced files.
I have followed the Procedures from AutoDesk WikiHelp.
Steps taken (summary)
1. Open Top Assembly.
2. In the top browser, I select the part and set Action -> Rename.
3. Rename File.
4. In the bottom browser, I select the file types for additional referenced files.
5. I select (highlight) all the files.
6. Click "SAVE"
When I go to open the files, to check if the changes have been made, obviously to rename works on the Top Assembly,
BUT for other additional refereced files, it doesn't.
I am doing this in a Single User Project.
Just wondering if there are other steps that need to be done to use Design Assistant properly.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Actually what I was hoping to see was how you had the Action and Name columns setup when you do the rename.
Do you have a smaller assembly you can test with?
Are you referring to the options that pop up when I right-click on the Action and Name columns?
See the attachment.
If not, please elaborate.
So after you have selected rename in the action, you will change the Name (this is the file name).
Then hit save, and that component will be renamed.
Is that what you are trying to do?
I would like to rename a part. The new part (and file name) as I understand it, if renamed in DA, should be reflected in the top assembly, which the part is in. And with DA, it can also be reflected in the referenced drawings.
So after you rename a part, then open the assembly drawing, the new part name is not showing up?
I guess I am not really understanding the problem, sorry.
