CadActive Skeletons Settings

Modified on Thu, 27 May 2021 at 08:27 AM

There are some application settings that CadActive Skeletons uses when it creates features. You can view these both in Creo and in the web application, but can only edit them in the web application. They are:

CadActive SettingDescriptionSetting Value Options

Publisher - Create Publish Geometry Features

When True: This creates one publish geometry per selected geometry item.
When False: This groups all of the selected items into one publish geometry feature
True, False

Copier - Create Copy Geometry Features

When True: AutoInterface will create copy geometry features for every published item found.
When False: AutoInterface will create independent datum features per item found instead.
True, False
Copier - Reference Method for Copy Geometry Features
Force Published Geometries: Only allow the Copier to use proper Publish Geometry Features.
Use Published Geometries: Attempt to use the Publish Geometry Feature - if it can't be found, fall back to use the original geometry.
Reference Original Geometry: Do not use Publish Geometry Features when creating a copy, use the original geometry instead.

View Settings in Creo

Within Creo, you can only view settings the Geometry Publisher is using. In the CadActive ribbon, select the CadActive dropdown menu under the "About" button and select "Settings". Once the Settings window opens, navigate to the "skeletons" tab.

In addition, there are a few settings that are located in the "general" tab as well (shown below).

Modify and/or View Settings in Web App

To view or modify these settings in the Web Application, navigate to and select the Standardize in the left hand size and the settings icon (shown below).

You will see the same settings that were shown in the Creo Parametric settings window, except now they can be changed (assuming you have the necessary privileges).

If you navigate to the Synchronize tab, you will see the corresponding settings as well.
