In Update 17.1 two key enhancements have been made to the Components Center to streamline its workflows.
Components Center is a cloud-based digital component library and catalog management service. It allows organizations to efficiently manage their component libraries ensuring that their users' designs use approved content. Components Center stores the geometry and rich data associated with a digital component as well as reference files and URLs for use in all phases of the component's lifecycle.
The following new enhancements are introduced in this release:
In Update 17.1 you can now choose the model you wish to upload as a component in the Components Center Upload dialog using the Models field.
In the Components Center Explorer dialog, you will now be able to identify a parametric component by the ‘P’ overlay on its thumbnail preview. This way you can easily distinguish between a parametric and non-parametric component.
