Drawing Model in Creo 2

Drawing Model in Creo 2

Drawing Model in Creo 2

Okay I'm in Pro E Creo 2.0 and working on a drawing. I normally work on NX and these two do not work the same. The original assembly I set the drawing to was named incorrectly so I did a save as on the assembly. I am trying to replace the old assembly in the drawing with the new one that has the correct name and it's a big fail. I am able to "set" the new model in the drawing but cannot get the views to update to the new model. Now this drawing pulls in both models if I close and re-open it. How do I get rid of the old model and update the views to display the new one?

RE: Drawing Model in Creo 2

Depending on how much work you've done, it might be easier to just delete that drawing and recreate it with the proper assembly.
I'm pulling up my Creo now though, I recall being able to do this fairly easily, but it's been a while.

RE: Drawing Model in Creo 2

Okay yeah, you should just be able to click Drawing Models on the Layout tab and click Del Model when the menu manager pops up, then select the incorrect model.

RE: Drawing Model in Creo 2

When I try to DEL model I get the error at the bottom that reads "Cannot delete model with views using it". I need to somehow replace the model in the view first but have not been able to find how to do so.

RE: Drawing Model in Creo 2

I don't think there is anyway around that.
The dwg sees the 2nd assembly as a completely separate entity than the first, even though it's just a Save-As.

Someone else might know more, but it sounds to me like you're going to have to delete the old view and recreate it with the new model. =/

If you're using version control software, like windchill, you may have the option to rename the part there. If you can and do, you'll just have to right click [Sheet 1] and Update Sheet.
If you can't rename it there, talk to someone who manages the server/software and chances are they can do it for you. And then again, update the sheet.

If you are not using a PDM system, then a file -> rename -> in session should fix the problem - once you have deleted the 'correct' named assembly.

Thanks robertib your post worked.

RE: Drawing Model in Creo 2

Always rename an assembly with the drawing loaded so the associativity will be updated. This works the same as with NX!
