Re: Design Assistant - Renaming Files

11-02-2012 11:50 AM in reply to: john.retzlaff

When I change the part name (.ipt) in DA, then open the assembly, it works fine.  DA is able to fix the link between the assembly and the update part name (.ipt)

 

The issue I am having, is how to...at the same time...have the other referenced files link to the new part name.

 

Scenario. 

 

I have A.ipt.

 

This is used in A.iam (assembly file), and A.idw (drawing file)

 

So...lets say I change the part number from A.ipt to B.ipt  (I dont care about the iProperties Part name, I am talking file name here with the proper extension.)

 

When I open A.iam (assembly file), the new part B.ipt is referenced.  The changes in DA have worked..but

 

when I open A.idw (drawing file)...the link is not there and I have to find that referenced part in the "Resolve Link" window.

 

Hope this helps.

In the lower pane of Design Assistant, in the action column, have you tried selecting "Update" for your drawing?

Peace,

Ahh.  Now that I didn't try.  I will try and see if that works.  Thank you.

Thank you guys.  That worked.  That is definitely a detailed step that should be added to the Wiki site.  If it was on there, I definitely missed it.  Thanks again.
