How Do You Stop Model Tree “Creeping”?

Question:

In Creo 2.0, how do you stop the screen and the assembly/model tree from  “creeping” out of  view when doing multiple replacement editing?

Joel Sanders, Flowserve Corp.

Answered by: Zack Lyon

Joel, I am pretty sure that you can “pin” your menu. Get CREO 7?

Mine doesn’t do that. Creeping could be related to something like a Mouseball that is not “Zero” ed out. My 3DConnexion device will do that though.

If you are using a 3D mouse, unplug, reset and retry.

Benefits/drawbacks to creating & using start parts

Question:

Can you explain some of the benefits (and drawbacks if any) to creating and using “start parts”?

(please provide some examples of what a good “start part” should entail)

Bill, you know this answer.. I expect you to EMBELLISH after I botch it.

Simply, a Start part should have your company unit settings, accuracy settings, layer settings, parameters that are important. Part Start parts will have different parameters than a SheetMetal start part.

The same can be said for all of your Assembly Start Parts.

Consultants who work with different customers said customers might have standards and templates that they need if you are passing data back to them. It is important to keep these in the respective customer start directories so that you don’t get messed up. Be careful! File your data and templates in a repeatable logical location so that your actions do not overlap with other customers’ standards.

As far as Drawbacks? If you pick the wrong start part, well, I don’t think you can slip the table cloth back under once you have this base settings established/baked into the base parts. ** Don’t pick the wrong start parts!**

Any initiative to make MBD compatible with step files? What is best application for conveying MDB model to vendors?

Question:

Is there any initiative to make MBD completely compatible with step files? If not step files, what application would be best for conveying your MDB model to vendors?

Larry, I think that using combined model states and add annotations accordingly. Good luck changing anything!

Layer Management – Creo View

Question:

When using Creo 3 and saving files, the model (drawing) layers appear correct. When the drawing is open in Creo View, numerous planes a WCS’s are on and make the file unreadable. It is difficult to find these features n the model to turn them off. What are the options when the DRW file is published (to a Creo view file) to prevent this from happening?
