"To continue adding to my list of frustrations with SC. We are now having problems when we go to save. We get a message that says that we can't save because we have run out of memory. At first I thought this might be legitimate…"
"Yes, it does appear that you can create multi-detail drawings now, but it seems to be limited to internal parts. It doesn't work with external parts from my experience. Maybe that makes sense though."
"Are you suggesting duplicating the part geometry into each of these drawings? Doesn't that make it harder to maintain the same geometry across different parts.
Or are the seperate drawing designs referencing the original…"
"Martin - Please help me get my head around the difference between the file name and the name of the content within?. I understand the zip file format and the xml data stored inside.
I also noticed that they use zip for the…"
"I have more info now, as I built a test case for people to try.
I built a simple part called block.scdoc. Then I built an assembly called test3.scdoc that uses block.scdoc.
Now put the original block.scdoc in a separate…"
"I save a 2011sp0 SC model as PDF using the "Geometry(PRC-B-REP)" option. When I try to open with adobe reader 9.4.2 I get an error message that says "A 3D data parsing error has occured"
If I use the facets…"
"The problem was that when right-clicking on the "missing component", there was no option to delete or replace component. When loading, it gave us the option to find the component, but locating an old version of the file,…"
"I think Willem is using the PDF Creator tool to merge the multiple pages together into one document. I have acrobat on my machine, so I could do it with that, still doesn't make it any easier.
I used to use a command line pdf…"
"I also agree about the need to create PDF's of the drawing sheets directly from SC. On that note, I think when I printed them to PDF I could only do one sheet at a time, instead of all the sheets. Maybe I missed an option…"
"In addition to being able to modify the geometry and properties in a BOM and then reuse that configuration, I would also like to be able to define tables geometries at the format level that can be used at the drawing instance…"
"Sounds like a good enhancement request to file with SpaceClaim.
I could use this command if it gets developed by someone. I have an assmbly where if you "expand all", then "select all" and then the "use internal copy"…"
"That is a very interesting point you brought up. Almost any other software I know of is capable of saving files in older versions, which is useful when you have E.G. a client or supplier who does not upgrade as fast as you do or doesn't have a…"
I thought I remember reading that because SpaceClaim uses XML based files, not only will future versions of spaceclaim be able to read stuff created in older versions of spaceclaim, older versions of SpaceClaim will be able to read stuff created by new versions. The idea being that the old version trying to read the new stuff would simply ignore the parts it didn't understand. Yesterday, I upgraded to 2009+ from 2009 sp1. (I hope I understand these version naming conventions; is 2009+ like…See More
