  • Cad Model Gone

    Can someone tell me why I have lost my CAD model? I have a program that I saved and when I open it up it works fine and the Cad model is there.
    I had to remane the program so I went to the program files, right clicked the file, hit remane, and just renamed it. I then opened up the program and everything is there but the solid cad model.
    Any idea's?

    There is a seperate file that holds the cad (.CAD) and you have to rename it too.

      Matt,
      Would I just look for the name of the old program but with the .cad extension? If I find this, I just rename it to the new name?
      Thanks

        Yep. When you make a program with imported cad data, you get 2 files:
        Prog-name.PRG
        Prog-name.CAD
        One for the 'code' and one for the 'cad'. Just find 'OLDNAME.CAD' and rename it to 'NEWNAME.CAD' and you'll be good to go.

            If you use the file operations feature under the File menu, you can rename programs there and it will automatically rename both .prg and .cad files. Or as Matt said, you can rename both yourself.

                I am doing what ya'll said. I can't get it to work.
                I have found the old name cad file and right clicked it and hit rename. I then close out of PC-DMIS completely and reopened it. It still isn't there.
                I am having one heck of a day.
                The part in question is driving me nuts.
                I still new to PC-DMIS but am learning everyday.

                  Is it still in the same directory / folder as teh PRG file you are opening or have you, by mistake, of course, move the PRG file or even saved it to a new place, by mistake? They have to be in the same place, Pcdmis ONLY looks in the same place as the PRG file for the CAD file.

                    Just an idea:
                    When you renamed the cad file, did you change the file type?

                      This exactly why I do a SAVE AS. It cuts all of this stuff out of the picture.

                        Did you use a DCI, like Unigraphics or CATIA, for the CAD file? I used that a couple times instead of importing an IGES or SETP and noticed that sometimes weird things happen there when renaming programs. Never had it happen using the rename option in Operations when using IGES or STEP files.
