Re-order Solutions in Simulation File


Hi all,


I'm running NX, and I'd like to re-order some solutions I've made in a thermal simulation. In general I've noticed that NX displays the solutions in the order they were created however I've yet to find a way to modify this display order. The obvious 'drag and drop' doesn't work, and I haven't found a re-order command in sub-menus relating to the solutions...


This is a minor inconvenience, but it becomes a bit more of a hassle when dealing with a large amount of solutions. Please let me know if I'm missing something obvious!


Thanks in advance,



Re: Re-order Solutions in Simulation File




I like to reorder the solution, too. But as far as I know there is no official way to do so.

Here is my way: I clone the solutions one by one, delete the old ones and rename the cloned ones into old names.

It works good when the results are OP2 or not yet solved.

It doesn't work in cases with modal response simulations. Other special solution processes I couldn't test not yet.


Edit 2018-06-04: It's very important to delete only the solution but  not the results in OP2 files. 2018-06-04_080727.png


If you know a better way, I would be very interested in knowing it.

Best wishes, Michael
