Library Part Conversion


I made some custom library parts based a year or two ago in version 25 and then saved them in our company library folder.  When we open the file I made them for in version 25 the objects work great.  However, when we open them in another version (26 or 27) or another file (to use for another project) the 3d does not work.  If I save the file that they work in as an archive file, the objects work in 3d in any version, but if they are linked to a separate library folder they do not work.  I am completely stumped as to why this would happen.


Is the session report showing any errors?

can you see the objects inside the library manager in ac27?

do they work if you load them into your embedded library in 27?

can you open the objects in ac27 GDL editor?

If so what happens if you resave the the gsm from ac27?

The 3D is not Calling anything is it? Called objects are include in archives, so my guess is that you have some library differences between your AC versions. From memory, if the Called object is done via a parameter rather that being hardcoded, it will not report as missing.
