Selecting a Custom Icon for a Component


I am currently building Models for the eCatalog. Is there a way to select a custom icon? When a Component does not have any geometry, I would like to have an Icon (e.g. a PNG), which is then shown in the eCatalog representing the component.

Thanks in advance!

Good question. I don’t know if you are allowed to overwrite/avoid the application automatically saving the icon/preview image of the component when it is saved to file.

For those who know, please share.

When saving the component or the layout, the application takes a snapshot of what is rendered in the 3D world (it changes the camera position to fix the component). So I don’t think there is a way to do modify this directly using the API.
