Second save error

40 Views, 15 Replies
12-16-2002 11:55 AM

Put a file in CF; kind of big (3 MB), but
probably faster than having to roll-down the EOP in all the ipt files if anyone
wants to have a look.

 

This is an assembly that works okay but if I save
it after it's already been saved (...did I save this yet?) it returns a
file save error. Okay that out, pick close, the save dialog comes up again and
it saves okay then. ... Huh? ... The individual subs didn't do that, only when I
get the complete assembly together does it start. The reason I know is because I
rebuilt the assembly to see if a new one would do it as well; yep it does. Are
my skates on backwards or something? Wonder if the same thing would happen to
someone else if anyone wants to give it a shot.

Hi, Larry.

There's a part that didn't get included in your zip; "ipart_spring_English
[nd=11.3 mm].ipt".

Anyway, I opened "Cartidge Sun Floating Screw-in.iam", deleted the spring
instances (two, one in top assy, one in sub), save, save. No problems or
error messages. Close, open, rebuild all, save, save. Still no probs (???).

If you want to post or email the missing ipart (and factory?, I don't often
use 'em so don't know) I'll try it again. It might be interesting to Pack n
Go the assembly to a new directory and try that assembly (?).

Jeff

Dang ... forgot I had that iPart spring in there. I was going to break the
link at first like I did on the Nylock because it didn't include the correct
thread but I just added the spring parameters to the table instead. I put it
in CF. Thanks Jeff. I'll try that P&G change and see if it has any effect.

I've been bumping in to this little error message quite alot. I couldn't be
bothered about it, if I click save again afterwards IV will save the file
fine. I put it down to madness, couldn't reproduce it so it must have been
me.......

I reproduced it by rebuilding the assembly, but that surely doesn't mean
it's not something I whacked.

I get it with my ipart save bug all of the
time.  It seems like it's still trying to save the ipart children (and
factory <grrr>) when the second save is issued.

 

You have iparts in this assy right?  You
aren't seeing the ask to save the factory error are you?
