I'm trying to use "replace part" command in my electrical essembly but I'm getting this error. I think what's happening is it is not looking in Teamcenter when I try replacing the part. How can I fix this? Is this my enviromental variables?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Two known reasons why this could happen:
1) The part family "master" is not in the database.
To find the part family master, make the member the work part and attempt to create a part family out of it. You should get a popup telling you it already belongs to a part family and the parent file is listed:
2) The ptb file that is associated with the part family is out of sync with the part family.
A little more complicated... You would need to know where these members belong in the hierarchal list within the routing part library (e.g. in the Routing Part Library node of the Reuse Library). From there you can cross reference the node in the list to the node in the PLV file (inch or metric) and then locate the ptb file for that node.
NAME Connector 45 Degree
Open the ptb file in a text editor and make sure the member exists in that file. Open the corresponding part family template spreadsheet and make sure the new member exists and that the master has the correct name:
"7387" 1.0 .5625 1.375 .5 .5 "Aluminum" "23605" "flx_con_45.prt"
It's possible that new members were added in the part family spreadsheet, or the ptb file, and the two weren't synchronized using update_fam_from_ptb.exe.
If you get lost, please consider calling GTAC.
