You can filter all components assembled in CAD (having an ERP number) and whose geometry has been changed BEFORE a catalog update.

On the tabbed page Status log all projects are listed with their old, new path and old, new NB and geometrical similarity.

When selecting a project line, you can see the details under Tabular Compare and 3D comparison, so that you can evaluate the relevance of geometrical changes.

[Note] Note

Indeed values as of 90% Similarity are marked as successful, nevertheless smaller geometrical changes may show up. In these cases check whether it is an official successor version.

Once selecting a row in the "Status log", the respective part is loaded in the "Tabular Compare" and "3D comparison".

  3. Then click on Check.

  4. In the dialog box Check, click on Simulate ERP update.
