As the title says, I am trying to convert a CATProduct into a CATPart. Is there any easy way of doing this? I have tried a Saveas with no option.
Converting a CATProduct to a CATPart
I took this oppotunity to generate a quick Video of how this can be done as its a question I frequently get asked.
Refer to the Hints & Tips section
That's great. The video was very helpful. However after following the steps in the well presented video, I still can't find the "Generate CATPart from Product" button under the Tools menu in the Assembly Design workbench. I am using R21, is this release dependent?
The "Generate CATPart from Product" tool is licence dependent. It is most likely that your licence is restricting you from being able to see it. Unfortunately the work around is to obtain a licence which allows for the tool to be used.
What license is needed for this function?
Hi Compton, For the PLM Express licence configuration the MCE licence is required (it is a function included in the Assembly Design 2 module of the licence I believe). Sam
