How to add parts folder to parts catalog
« on: August 30, 2015, 04:49:30 am »
I have a folder of parts i need to add to my parts catalog. Anyone know how I can do this? Simply copying the folder into the directory doesn't  appear to be working.

I had to modify the Imperial Structures APC file to include the Subtype sets for each structure:

<SubTypeString>Rectangular</SubTypeString>... etc

as well as add the "chapters" from file from home.

In the end not too bad but Autodesk should really axe the part builder and use their modeling system... it really is a complete PITA
