Search for Face Parts

Is there a way to search for face parts in the structure browser? This would really help when importing parts.

Thanks

Tom

Yes.


Create your own column. e.g. call it 'Object type'

Your new display function will get a browser node. It has to figure out the obj as selitem and with some checks you can determine the kind of object (e.g. FacePart). Once the column is working, you can set up a browser search/filter triggered by 'Object type' equal 'FacePart'.


Have a look to C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo Elements\Direct Modeling 20.6.1.0\personality\sd_customize\UWGM\uwgm_browser_views.lsp and the function display-windchill-model-attribute how to get an obj-sel-item of a browser node. do not use 'sel_item' as a variable name! That is rather bad code style IMHO.

and how to use sd-create-column-definition ....


here is the raw content of the specific part of your display function:
Code:
(defun display-object-type(node name)
  (let (obj (get-sel-item-from-browser-node node))
    (cond 
      ((not (sel-item_p (obj))) "no obj") ;; quick exit
      ((sd-inq-part-p obj)
        (cond
         ((sd-inq-inseparable-child-p obj) "Insep.Child")
         ((sd-inq-empty-part-p obj) "Empty Part")
         ((sd-inq-face-part-p obj) "Face Part")
         ((sd-inq-wire-part-p obj) "Wire Part")
         ((sd-inq-part-sheet-metal-material obj) "Sheet Metal")
         ; ... 
         (T  "Solid Part")
         ))  ;; end part cond
      ((sd-inq-assembly-p obj)
       (cond 
         ((sd-inq-inseparable-child-p obj) "Insep.Child")
         ((sd-inq-inseparable-master-p obj) "inseparable Assy")
         ((sd-inq-container-p obj) "Container")
         ((zerop (length (sd-inq-obj-children obj))) "Empty Assy")
         ;...
         (T  "Assembly")
         ))  ;; end assembly cond
      ;...
      ;...
      (T  "obj type not determined")  ;; or just "" empty string
      ) ; end obj conditions
  )) ;; end let+defun
Make sure your most common matches do appear early within the conditions. It's question of performance. Make sure not to code complex inquiries used here: It's question of performance!


I only wrote it down, not executed, not tested!
