Does Nx keep a "log" of fiel making up an .afm?

Does Nx keeps some sort of "log", “time stamp” (something) of the .fem files used for an .afm?

 

Consider the following

In a “master” folder I have the following

theassys.afm

                a.fem

                b.fem

 

I make a copy of all files for b.fem (b.fem, b_i.prt and b.prt) in a separate folder. I work on the ipart and fem. When done I copy and overwrite all 3 files in the master folder. Can such operation “corrupt” the .afm (and .sim)?

 

Thanks

NX doesn't keep a log in such a way that it will complain if a file is overwritten by a newer version. It does however cache the files it currently has open, so be sure to close all the open files being overwritten before doing it. I don't foresee any problems with this use case.

Thanks for the reply. I always close all the files before attemping such thing but I am not 100% sure that Nx actually likes it. It does not complain until the .afm is "corrupted"
