How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

(OP)
I want to know how to replace Catia Drawing link from CatPart to CatProduct.

I used File->Dsk... to relink but I am getting the error like "The link refused the document"

RE: How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

Can't do it.  Create a new Drawing :(

RE: How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

I am having the same problem with linking.  I get the link refused by document error as well.  The exception is that I am relinking between 2 catparts. Is there special "rules" that allow you to link or relink? I have read that you can't use generative views to do it, among other things.

RE: How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

catiajim is right. you cant do relink a drawing. You have to recreate the drawing

RE: How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

: ),  nice

Catiajim has forgotten more than most of us know, he might have been mistaken on this one.  I might as well recreate the drawing if I had to check every dimension.

 

RE: How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

Catiajim hasn't forgotten that. Most of the time V5 exists you could't relink a drawing to another part with a "wrong" UUID.

This method is for urgency cases, not as a method for standard use.

RE: How to relink Catproduct to Catia drawing

The original question was relinking from a CATPart to a CATProduct.  Does that workaround work for this case?  I can understand how it would work from CATPart to CATPart or CATProduct to CATProduct, but not how it would work from CATPart to CATProduct or vice versa.  

Thanks for the complements :)

cann't agree more
