Freeware: Batch check drafts - Issue fixed!

Legend
Legend

Hello community,

i released a new version of Draft Checker. It can be used to batch verify, that the following elements of drafts are up to date:

  • partslists
  • drawing views
  • models of drawing views

There are options to scan drafts for the following issues:

  • mass of the model is zero
  • scale of the sheets doesen't refer to a model view
  • status of the file is less than a value you can choose

The tool will not detect any bugs in design, sorry. Robot wink

You can add drafts for a batch run by drag and drop. You can add folders, the drafts within the folders will be the result for the check.

I don't know if the tool works with insight, please make a test and give me feedback.

The tool is freeware under the MIT license, you can use it for free.

The tool is signed with a valid certificate, but the smart screen filter will display an alert. If you click "more info" (i don't know the exact message) you can run the installation.
You can download the setup files from http://code.c-k-m.info/DFTChecker/setup.exe , it should work without admin rights, if .NET framework 4.6 or later is present on your machine.

I hope this can be useful for somebody.

Hallo Jan,

normalerweise ist bei Win10 das .NET 4.6 enthalten, welches auch 4.5.2 abdeckt.

Hier läuft es auf allen Windows 10 Rechnern problemlos, nicht nur auf der Entwicklungsmaschine.

Kannst Du .NET 4.6 updaten?

Hello Christian:

  

I think your installer takes care of this as well.

I tried installing and could see the following for a brief while:

  

NetInstalling.png

 

where "wird installiert" translates to "is being installed" - is that correct ?

So the installer appears to have taken care of the .Net upgrade as well on my machine.

   

I am on Win-7, 64-bit though.

  

Last but not the least, I much admire your spirit of open sharing of macros and utilities.

    

Regards,

Thank you Tushar,

that's correct. .Net 4.5.2 is a required component and should get installed if it's not available.

I'm planing to recode my model styler too in the near future and publish the whole project on GitHub.

The next project will be a draft styler :-)

Hello Jan,

i asked google about windows 10 and net framework 4.5.2 but i couldn't get a good answer. Sorry.

You could take a look at the windows features und "Programme und Features" "Windows-Features aktivieren oder deaktiviern".

My settings look like this:

Hi Christian,

 

I think it does not update drawing views when they are out to date. is this correct ?

It only says it's out of date.

I'm asking to much propably but could you make this func. also abvailable in future releases of draftchecker

Anyway I'm so glad that we have people like you, who wants to share his own code with the SE community !!!

Your modelstyler macro is so refreshing a pleasure to work with everytime I have to use files from other company's

There is a commercial solution  that updates the drafts because it can be complex.

 

What is the solution:

- Update the drafts with "out of date" views - The light grey frame around the views. This is the easy thing

- Update the drafts with outdated assemblies - The grey brackets around the views. This is by far the most complex thing because you have to update the structure of the assembly.

- Optional to do this on a server as a service. Will not block the local machine and you get status info when the draft has been finished. Very useful for drawings from large assemblies.

 

If you need more details get in touch with me.

Halo Stefan,

 

There is also a freeware macro available that can do this.

It's a macro written from Wolfgang Kunert from WKSYSPRO.

It's called SeDftUpd.zip you can find it on this link

If you use the english website then it's a bit hidden.....
