I have an issue with imported step files from Altium causing conflicts when they are put into a single assembly due to name conflicts between auto generated Imported body names, which are highlighted in the attached image. I have a macro right now that can transverse through the assembly and rename the lowest level part files with the following logic (all credit to Deepak Gupta):
swApp.SetUserPreferenceToggle swExtRefUpdateCompNames, False
For i = 0 To nLevel - 1
sPadStr = sPadStr + " "
vChildComp = swComp.GetChildren
For i = 0 To UBound(vChildComp)
Set swChildComp = vChildComp(i)
Set swChildModel = swChildComp.GetModelDoc
If swChildModel.GetType = swDocPART Then
swChildComp.Select2 False, 0
'Get configuration name
swCompConfig = swChildComp.ReferencedConfiguration
'Get Configuration Properties Values
NewName = "testname"
swChildComp.Name2 = NewName
TraverseComponent swChildComp, nLevel + 1
swApp.SetUserPreferenceToggle swExtRefUpdateCompNames, bOldSetting
I think it is the highlighted If statement that selects the sldprt files and then goes on to rename them. I can't figure out how to modify the script so it can instead stop traversing at the part and then rename (or more preferably add a suffix to the existing name) the imported parts highlighted in the attached image? If I could figure that out it would stop my ID collision issue. And unfortunately Pack-and-Go doesn't work for me because it does not actually rename everything down the hierarchy, causing the collisions to still take place.
