Changes to the catalog and reference data are grouped into the following categories.

Reference data changes

Reference data changes refer to data used to define the part definition, specifications, and other reference data rules for placing the part occurrences. To change the reference data, we recommend the following procedures:

Add a new record

  1. Open the spreadsheet in which you want to create a new record.

  2. At the beginning of the new record entry, type A.

  3. Bulkload the spreadsheet, and then review the log file.

  4. Use the Verify Consistency Report Command to resolve any discrepancies.

Edit an attribute

  1. Open the spreadsheet containing the attribute to modify.

  2. If you are modifying an occurrence attribute, type M at the beginning of the record, and then edit the attribute. Then, bulkload the spreadsheet, update the impacted objects, and verify your changes.

  3. If you are not modifying an occurrence attribute, determine if the attribute is used in the unique identification of the record. If it is, copy the record, type D at the beginning of the first record and A at the beginning of the second record, and then edit the second record. If it is not, type M at the beginning of the record, and then edit the attribute.

  4. Bulkload the spreadsheet, and then review the log file.

  5. Run the Catalog Checker to review the impact of deleting the record. If there is not an impact on the geometry or the topology of the modeled objects, skip to step 8.

  6. Use the Synchronize Model with Catalog Command in Project Management to mark out-of-date occurrences.

  7. Use the Synchronize Workspace with Catalog Command to update the impacted objects, then skip to step 9.

  8. Use the Synchronize Model with Catalog Command to mark out-of-date occurrences at the host and at all satellites.

  9. Verify your changes, and resolve any discrepancies.

Delete a record

  1. Open the spreadsheet in which you want to delete a record.

  2. At the beginning of the record to delete, type D.

  3. Bulkload the spreadsheet, and then review the log file.

  4. Run Catalog Checker to review the impact of deleting the record. If there is not an impact on the geometry or the topology of the modeled objects, skip to step 7.

  5. Use the Synchronize Model with Catalog Command to mark out-of-date occurrences.

  6. Use the Synchronize Workspace with Catalog Command to update the impacted objects, then skip to step 8.

  7. Use the Synchronize Model with Catalog Command to mark out-of-date occurrences at the host and at all satellites.

  8. Verify your changes, and resolve any discrepancies.

  • Names such as UserClassName, OccClassName, ObjectName, SpecName, and PartNumber must be unique when compared to each other within a class and across the entire catalog.

  • See the GUIDs Sheet in the Smart 3D Reference Data Help on unique ID definitions.

Symbol definition changes

Changes to symbol definitions affect RAD 2D symbols, .NET/Visual Basic symbols, and Solid Edge files used to define the graphical representation of the part occurrences.

Catalog schema changes

Catalog schema changes affect data used to define the classes, interfaces, and properties for part definitions and part occurrences.

Other changes

You can also make smart occurrence rule changes and naming rule changes to the catalog and reference data.
