#1 How do I upload parts to the catalogue?
You can't do it manually. It is automatic

Thanks for posting on the forum.

It is done automatically, as long as the user has agreed to the Community Catalogue Terms of Use, and a part fulfills the following criteria:

- Has a description

- Has a manufacturer

- Has a layout view (except for some classes for which layout views don't make sense, such as a cable, for example)

- Has an image defined if no layout is defined.

Any part that fulfills this criteria will be automatically packaged and uploaded to the server provided that it has not been saved in the last 5 days. (Most parts are modified often after their creation, thus waiting for 5 days assumes the user considers the part to be complete.)

And how do I agree?

If you try and download a part and have not yet agreed to the terms of use, you will be prompted to do so.
Another method is to go to the View my profile section of your SkyCAD profile and click on Community Catalogue License.

And what happens with manually created fields?
Manually created properties (such as internal part-number, for example) will only be included if the property was created on the exact class of the part.
For example, any property created at the ‘Component’ class level will not get exported to the online catalogue.

I really think for European

I really think for European customers it would be very usefull to implement an EAN code by default. This is the unique barcode, and is always the right product. I think it should be added by default, it is a real pity if this number gets lost.

How can I see files are uploaded? Is there a way of monitoring this process?

Thanks for your suggestion

Thanks for your suggestion. We'll give it some thought.

The only way is to search for it on the online parts catalogue.
Just so we understand the reason for this question, why would you want to check if your files are uploaded?
Did you want to share them with colleagues/coworkers?

I just want to know my

I just want to know my network traffic, and if I share it with someone through the online catalogue, it would help me a lot to know it is uploaded. Otherwise I have to guess it should be uploaded, keep laptop on to hope it will be uploaded.

Here's how to share manually

If you want to share a part with someone, without sharing your entire environment (which is the usual way), you can do so without the online parts catalogue.

  1. Open the catalogue part via Create/Add tab or Catalogue Tools tab
  2. Select it in the tree view
  3. Go to the Export tab and choose Package <ClassName> for deployment. This will create the package file manually.
  4. Send that package file to the person you want to share it with
  5. Ask them to open the package file in SkyCAD by double-clicking on it
  6. Select it in the tree view, go to the Import tab and select Import <ClassName> into Standard Environment
  7. Close the part (which is still only the package) in the tree view

Thank you

You will find it on the View my profile section of your online profile.
(If you've tried to download a part from the online catalogue, you've already agreed to that, so you don't need to worry about it.)

Thank you, but as mentioned above, you don't need to send us parts to upload to the catalogue. They will upload automatically.
