assemble a model


New member
How can I assemble a model from different working directory, without searching for this model each time I open my assembly?

In different terms: can I make a kind of hyperlink to other folders so I can build my library for my common parts.

Many thanks

Full option:

search_path c:\library d:\pro_e_work ...

Pro/E will search your current working directory first, then, use the search path to find files it needs.
I've got a script which makes a list of each part of your directory and then when you assemble your part in an assembly, Pro/E know in which directory the part is. It's better then search path when you have a lot of parts and assembly and work in network.

Let me know if you want it.
