An application that displays the representations of a Cad on the info page, with the abilty to have custom icons and download with one click.
After installing this extension, Infopage for Cads will display an additional component called Quick Icon Files
The main point of this extension is to provide an easy access to the different representations of an object. To download a representation you only need to click on the icon that represents the desired representation type.
The extension uses the internal filename of each representation to describe the representation type. Depending on the representation type, the filename will contain a set of keys that identify different attributes of the representation.
Besides the additional component in the Cad information page, the extension also provides with additional column views that can be inserted into any table in Windchill by customizing the Tableview.
The result of adding this two columns to the Table is the following:
The size of the icon that are displayed in the Information Page for an Cad can be modified throught this setting:
This config option is a list of file extensions that the program will display, if the list is empty then all files will be displayed. Setting ‘Display invalid representations’ to true will show extensions that are not included on this list.
The administrator may choose what filename patterns match an Icon. The filename patterns are processed from longest to shortest, independently of the order you see them in the settings page.
The program will fist check for complete matches
It also supports the use of REGEX, to define regex rules the regex must be contained within REGEX(example)
Wildcards are also supported to match file names
For regex and wildcards if multiple matches are found then the longest match will be selected
It is possible to upload your own custom icons, this can be done by navigating to the site level -> folders -> wex -> img, open the document named wex-quickaccess-adv-imageholder, the images are stored in the attachements. If you do not have access to the site level you can create a document anywhere with the name wex-quickaccess-adv-imageholder and upload your icons to the attachments.
Based on the mapping choosen for the setting above, some files may not be mapped to a given icon. You can choose to display those icons in the UI with a default “unknown icon”, or to not display them at all.
