Redefine the "swap part"

We have some CAM templates, where the dummy "swap part" is not being swapped, when you go file, new and pick the template.


How do I redefine, so that it swaps?  Curently we get this message, and the dummy part remains.  Replace component is our work around.

Re: Redefine the "swap part"

The the assembly of the setup part, the component to be swapped has the attribute CAM_COMPONENT_TYPE=target.

Is the message from an OOTB template? There should be no geometry dependencies between the setup and the target.

No, the template was created by Siemens for us.


Adding the "target" attribute did the trick, thanks!
