DriveWorks Pro 15: Captured Information [send feedback...]

Information

The Captured Information task is used if the captured models and drawings have been moved and requires re-mapping, or if captured information is to be removed form the group.

The Captured Information list can be be filtered by using the filter at the top of the list.

Please see the topic How To Use Filters for more advanced filtering information.

To update captured information:

If all models in the group have the same relative file location then only the file location will need browsing to:

For example the models in the image below were all stored together in the folder C:\DriveWorks Pro Training\Old location

These have now been moved to the location C:\DriveWorks Pro Training\My New Location\Pressure Vessel

From the above images all models are kept together, only the folder location has changed.

  1. Right click the required folder from the folder tree on the left hand side of the window.
  2. Select change location. This will then enable you to browse to the new location of the folder.
  3. Click "OK" when the required folder has been selected.
  4. This will then update the captured information found in that location.

If any model is stored in a separate location then that model will require browsing to individually:

For example the captured models exist in individual folders, rather than in one common folder.

  1. Right click the required model from the model list.
  2. Select change location. This will then enable you to browse to the new location of the model.
  3. Click "Open" when the required model has been selected.
  4. This will then update the captured information for that model.
  5. Repeat for all other models.
When the majority of models are in the same location it may be quicker to use the folder tree first and then remap each individual model that still appears as missing.

To remove captured information:

Removing captured information removes all captured parameters and any rules applied to them.

If you wish to remove all of the captured information from a group

  1. Right click the folder from the folder tree and select delete references.

If you wish to remove the captured information of a model form a group

  1. Right click the model in the model list and select delete references.
The Missing files button will show all captured information that is missing from the group.
