I've just always wondered something. Many (most? all?) files downloaded from Misumi and FESTO (ParaSolid, X_T) always come in with the filename of the part and then "_90" at the end.
I've just always wondered why.
My guess is that the people that are generating the files are adding it.....probably as a means of file identification or something (maybe that it has been a downloaded file). Have you asked the creators of the files the significance of the _90?
I don't really have an ability to, they're all coming from automatically generated online sites. I was more just curious since I've seen it from multiple vendors, but can't imagine what the significance of it is. It must mean something, or else why have it there?
Just one of those little things that always keeps me up at night.
I have not experienced that 'problem'.
Can you post a few links which have given you the -90, to see if it's just your system.
It is not my "System". These are files generated by online automation component suppliers.
Go to either www.misumi.com or www.festo.com and configure and download any part, in Parasolid (X_T) format.
The file will come in with the filename being xxxxxx_90.x_t where xxxxxx is the configurable part number.
I am asking why there is a _90 in the filename. What does _90 mean?
I have no idea.
I have downloaded many parts from Festo and have never had the _90 suffix.
As an aside, why are you downloading parasolid files if you have SolidWorks?
...? I don't follow your question.
I downloaded both parasolid & SolidWorks format files from Festo last night, and did not see the _90 suffix you are seeing.
SolidWorks format files can be downloaded from Festo, and assuming you have SolidWorks, I was wondering why you are downloading parasolid format files instead of SW format files.
Guess that's just what I've always done for 15 years. Hadn't thought of it like that.
"Back in the Day" their support for SolidWorks meant you ran a .swb file and it was a little macro that would quickly "draw" the part while you sat and watched. ParaSolid is "clean" and I like how it comes in so I've just always used that.
I'm curious, what file did you download? I have never not had a ParaSolid Text (.X_T) file come in without the _90 suffix.
Here's one I just selected at random.
If the _90 appears after unzipping, what utility are you using to extract the files?
