      Arbortext Monster Garage, Season 2, Episode 20

      In this session of Arbortext Monster Garage series by Single-Sourcing Solutions, Duan Gauche will show you how to band-aid Arbortext SIS and get your parts list out of Creo Illustrate and into Arbortext. Duan Gauche will show how to place your parts list in Arbortext Editor. He’s going to show a small app that he developed that opens a Creo Illustrate file and then automatically inserts the parts list from the selected figure into your editor session at the current position of the cursor.

      Band-Aid for PTC Arbortext SIS

      Published: October 12, 2011

      I have noticed that PTC does not yet provide a way to place your parts list in Arbortext Editor.

      Obviously this is a bit of a gaping wound… so with all that pain, one needs a bit of aspirin and a band-aid.

      While I can’t help you with the aspirin, I can help you with some band-aid.  I have developed a small app that opens a Creo Illustrate file and then automatically inserts the parts list from the selected figure into your editor session at the current position of the cursor.

      If you are interested in this application, leave a comment.

      I have also added a video demo of how it works:
