In routing mechanical application we have Routing Part Library which contains standard parts. How is it possible to extend this library to cover other standards like ISO (Now only has DIN). In other words where can I find additional standard parts to add to my library?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Routing applications provide many example stock and parts from which you can create your own. To add your own standard parts you would need to create a part (typically a Part Family, where you can use the part family spreadsheet to assign multiple attribute values for each member of the family). You would then need to Qualify the part for use within the Routing application (add ports, anchors, characteristics) and create a Part Table (PTB) associated with the part to define any properties. The next step is to update your Part Library (PLV) to point to the new PTB's and, if necessary, edit your Application View file (APV) file to point to a new node in your edited PLV and/or any new disciplines.
If you're able to find a 3rd party, who has already created the Part Familes and PTB's, it could be as simple as editing your PLV to point to the new PTB's.
Hope that helps.
