Best Practice - Import and Export of STEP & IGES Files


When working with neutral file formats such as STEP and IGES there are often issues with the quality of the import or export. This is because of the different translation steps that occur when first exporting the native CAD-file to a neutral format and then importing the same file into Creo Parametric

Best Practice - Update Attributes for Multiple WTParts via Importable XLS
The easiest way to update the attribute information for multiple WTParts at the same time is to use the Importable XLS function in Windchill. The steps are:
- Export a list of WTParts as an Importable XLS
- Open the exported file in Excel and modify the attribute values
- Import the file to Windchill and notice the changed attribute values have been updated

This guide describes how it is done.
Best Practice - How to Export assembly as a single file
This guide describes how to export an assembly as a single part-file and then export it as a STEP-file.
Initially is is explained how you create a limited CAD-model (solid part-file) without all of the sensitive geometry and data that are contained within as assembly.
Best Practice - Export Structure from Windchill
This guide presents a workaround on how to export a structure and its content from Windchill PDMLink.

Firstly you create a package containing the structure, then you make a delivery out of it which you later on send to a compressed downloadable zip file.
