  • CAD file info in PC-DMIS

    Is there a way to find out which CAD file (file name) is loaded in a program?

    NOPE, not as far as I know, unless they have added that as part of V4.0+.

        I think Matt gave me the answer I wanted but didn't want to hear.

        I should have been more specific with my request. I want to know what IGES or STEP or whatever file was imported into my program.

            Go to VIEW>CAD INFO. When you open the CAD INFO dialogue box click anywhere on you imported model and it will tell you what iges file was used for importation.

              Oops, you are right, it does tell you the file source. When was this added? The last time I used VIEW CADINFO (years ago) the source was not included as part of the data.

                  I don't know if it's changed in 4.1 but VIEW- CAD INFO only tells you the info on the entity clicked on if you have more than one CAD file loaded. It works great for a single file, but if you are building an assy in your CAD it doesn't work for beans.

                    Interesting Bill, I will have to remember that. I don't use multiple files at the moment but that can always change eh?

                      By clicking on the "Assembly" icon on the Graphics mode toolbar the names of all the CAD files (UG, DES or IGES) that are loaded are displayed. You can also turn them on or off from this screen.

                          According to help that works in 3.6 and later. I guess I need to get myself to an upgrade class, it's been a long time.

                            Is there a way of tracing the file used to create cad in our program.
