  • CAD by Reference

    IS there anyway to delete/remove a CAD by REFERENCE importation or are you screwed forever and ever by either keeping a CAD file around that you no longer use (with data or without, you still need to keep the file) or always getting the "CAD MODEL REF. FILE does not exist, wah, wah, wah, yada, yada, yada".

    I deleted a CAD file accidentally in explorer and the program ran just fine without. Have you tried that?

        I am not saying that it won;t run, I don't want that [email protected] message to pop up everytime I open the program and I don't want the 'extra' cad file anymore. Typical of Pcdmis, you can't remove something you don't want anymore.

            Matt,
            Just delete the .CAD file and it won't look for the reference any more. Are you referencing more than 1 file?

              Nope, just one. Unfortunately, the cad file I was using had to be imported as a STEP file, and then I seperated the sides of stock and color-coded it for tolerancing. Then, I needed to 'see' the assembly, so I referenced the other file, but I only needed it for a little while, but now I am stuck with it, unless I want to take the time to re-do the sorting and color-coding. Just deleting the reference file gives me a pop-up everytime I open the file:

                Matt,

                Is it possible to turn off that message in the setup area? Some you can and some you can't, but I'd give it a look and see if you can kill it there.

                  Nope, I could not find it in there (V3.7 MR3), but thanks for the suggestion.

                    Hi Matt,
                    just delete (in Explorer) the .CAD-file of your partprogram (while that pp is not opened/used in the Demon), not the CAD-file of your reference.

                      Yep, already said, and as I said before, that would entail re-importing the STEP file (takes forever) and then re-sorting the data and re-coloring the data by tolerances. About 2 hours work for this file.

                        Now I understand your prob and I'm able to reproduce it:
                        you had already imported a step file and merged that CAD with a CAD reference
                        file; after deletion of the referenced CAD-file you're not able to turn off that
                        error-msgbox, but after cancelling out the error, the old/prepared Step-Import
                        comes in fine.
                        In 3.7MR3 there's no way to bypass the error.

                        But in 4.2 you can (after also cancelling the error) go into CAD Assembly
                        and delete then the link to the missing CAD-reference (see attachment).

                        after all do a backsave to V3.7 and the error should be history!
