How to change the default appearance and default background colour

Tips and TricksPosted by Ing. Vladimir Palffy Mon, August 28, 2017 02:53PM
Create custom colour palette (appearance.dmt) and custom system colour preferences (syscol.scl) and set custom configuration options:

pro_colormap_path
system_colors_file

.. for example:

pro_colormap_path C:\config\color
system_colors_file C:\config\color\syscol.scl

Download files:

Assembling with Constraints

PTC Creo 4.0Posted by Ing. Vladimir Palffy Wed, June 28, 2017 07:38AM

In PTC Creo Parametric and Pro/ENGINEER are multiple methods to assemble components. In this video tutorial you will learn primary methods to create Creo assemblies.

Like 3D models, all new assembly models include several characteristics in common. If you create your assembly models from standardized templates, you can save time (you do not need reoeatedly define company standard information - parameters, relations, units, materials, etc.)

Repeat Region: List of base parameters

Tips and TricksPosted by Ing. Vladimir Palffy Thu, June 22, 2017 10:14AM
PTC creo Parametric extracts values for parameters from model data and displays them in tables when the parameters are included within a repeat region. These parameters can be user-defined or they can already be defined by Pro/REPORT.

PARAMETER NAME DEFINITION
&asm.mbr.name Displays the name of an assembly member.
&asm.mbr.param.name Lists the names of all user-defined parameters in an assembly member.
&asm.mbr.param.value Lists the values of all user-defined parameters in an assembly member.
&asm.mbr.type Displays the type (part or assembly) of an assembly member.
&asm.mbr.User Defined User-defined parameter in an assembly member. For example: &asm.mbr.drw_number (where drw_number is Creo model parameter)
&fam.inst.name Displays the name of a family table instance.
&fam.inst.param Displays the name of a family instance parameter name.
&fam.inst.param.id Displays the ID of a family table parameter if it is a dimension.
&fam.inst.param.name Displays the name of a family table parameter.
&fam.inst.param.value Displays the value of a family table parameter for an instance.
&lay.param.name Lists the names of all user-defined parameters in a layout.
&lay.param.value Lists the values of all user-defined parameters in a layout.
&mdl.param.name Lists the names of all user-defined parameters in a model.
&mdl.param.value Lists the values of all user-defined parameters in a model.
&rpt.index Displays the number assigned to each record in a repeat region.
&rpt.level Shows the recursive depth of an item.
&rpt.qty Displays the quantity of an item.

Repeat Region: Attributes

Tips and TricksPosted by Ing. Vladimir Palffy Thu, June 22, 2017 09:55AM

· Duplicates – Allows multiple rows with the same data to exist. This is why we see several rows that look identical to each other. Unfortunately, Duplicates will not show a quantity in the quantity column (which is why we don’t see any right now).

· No Duplicates – Does not allow duplicate rows to exist in the table. For any two or more rows that are the same, the repeat region will calculate the total number of these rows and report that quantity in the second column.

· No Dup/Level – Does not allow duplicate rows to exist for each level of the assembly. This option only works if you have your level reporting set to Recursive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

· Recursive – Shows all levels of the assembly, including the assembly itself. Sub-assemblies will show all of their components on the table as well.

· Flat – Only reports the items at the top level of the current assembly.

The next option, Min Repeats, allows you to specify the minimum number of repetitious rows allowed in the repeat region. The default is 1, which will allow for blank lines to appear if data is missing from certain components. I recommend keeping this setting at 1 unless you have an advanced table function you are trying to work with that requires the number to be set to something else.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

· Start Index – Allows you to specify the number that the repeat region starts at when indexing rows.

· No Start Idx – Always starts the numbering at “1”.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

· Bln By Part - When you suppress or replace a component to which a BOM balloon is attached, this command reattaches the balloon to another placement of the same part. If no other copy of the part exists in the assembly, then the BOM balloon disappears from the drawing.

· Bln By Comp – Specifies that simple BOM balloons reattach themselves to whatever component replaced the one that originally owned the BOM balloon.
