2.5.3.2.4. Inserting parts into PARTdataManager "My parts" library

The following describes how to transfer a part (or assembly) created with CoCreate Modeling to PARTsolutions into the My parts library.

Optionally you can transfer the part with an explicitly created coordinate system and later export it with this orientation from PARTsolutions.

  1. Open or create a part in CoCreate Modeling.

  2. Select User library -> Insert.

  3. -> The Insert dialog opens.

    Now you have two possibilities:

    1. Select the part / assembly under Part/Assembly (Teil/Baugruppe) and directly confirm via .

      The coordinate system of the part is centered in the middle of its bounding box.

      The part is displayed in the 3D preview in PARTdataManager, saved and later exported exactly according to this orientation.

    2. Optionally you have the possibility to explicitly define an own coordinate system.

      Click on the button Referenz (Reference).

      -> The dialog "Aufnehmen" (Insert) is enhanced.

      Click into the drawing and determine Point, W axis and U axis in order to define an own coordinate system.

      The part is displayed in the 3D preview in PARTdataManager, saved and later exported exactly according to this orientation.

    Click on the button Übernehmen (Apply) and confirm via .

  4. The view returns to PARTdataManager and the window Select folder opens.

    1. Under My parts select the desired folder.

      (If you want to create a new subfolder, then click on Create folder.

      Insert a Name for the new subfolder, where the part is intended to be saved and confirm with OK.)

    2. Confirm with OK.

  5. --> The part is transferred and is now stored in the My Parts library. The coordinate system is also saved, so that the part can be inserted anytime later again correctly.

    In the 3D preview you can recognize the difference: With and without explicitly applied coordinate system.

    Coordinate system in the middle of the bounding box

    Coordinate system in the middle of the bounding box

    Coordinate system explicitly applied

    Coordinate system explicitly applied

Insert assemblies into My Parts library

The procedure with Assemblies is the same.

Export own parts from PARTdataManager

Export of your "own" parts from PARTsolutions: When exporting own parts from PARTdataManager -> My parts library, proceed the same way as with standard and purchased parts. (See Section 2.6.1, “ Insert 3D from the Standard and supplier parts library ”)

The later reinserted part from My parts has the original orientation.
