We are moving from NX 8.5 to NX 10. Its been a few years since I we have gone thru the exercise of customizing all the part templates. I recently installed NX 10 and, made a copy of the MACH folder and saved it as MACH_10. They a copied the environment variables and renamed them as shown below.
UGII_BASE_DIR = C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 10.0"
UGII_CAM_BASE_DIR = C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 10.0\MACH_10\
UGII_ROOT_DIR = C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 10.0\UGII\
The problem I’m having is is editing the part templates located in C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 10.0\MACH_10\resource\template_part\english. I have tried to make our normal changes like turning on cutter comp and setting common drill settings in the Drill.prt, Mill_contour.prt and Mill_planar.prt.
When I reopen nx10 the changes are not showing up. Is there a different variable I should be using to point to the customized files?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Make sure that the templates you are customising aren't in the Updates folder aswell as in the standard location, NX reads the update folder contents over all others if defined in there.
Note you might want to just copy the \MACH\Resource... tree, not the entire MACH folder
Less files to deal with if you apply an MR or MP...
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
Your syslog lists all the CAM variables.
Like Ken said - I would only copy the resource folder.
If you are new to this, take a look at this demo I did on setting up a separate resource folder: http://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Tech-Tips-Knowledge-Base-NX/Getting-started-with-NX-C...
