Where To Find This Script

You can run this script by clicking on Scripts->EM->

Awr script page macro
ScriptPathScript → EM → Check_For_Update_3D_Parts
ButtonLabelRun Script
from AWRDE menu.


AWR creates and maintains many generic 3D parts for customers to use. The primary method of customers accessing these parts are from the AWR website. AWR may need to update 3D parts as issues are discovered and fixed. This script is used to check whether there is a newer version available on the website for any of the downloaded 3D parts used in a project. See 3D Parts Update in the NI AWRDE documentation for more details on using this script.
