I'm looking for a fast, easy, way to generate folders in the program order view. For example if I've just started programming Part# 1234, I would like folders generated:
We split programs up by tool, and lable our programs as such. It can get tiresome creating and manually naming all of the folders. Is there some way to create a macro or something that will do this for us? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You could write a journal for this. If you are not familiar with that, I would use the renaming journal that we provide as a sample.
First, create all the programs with the default names:
Next, select the root node NC_PROGRAM at the very top of the ONT, and run the journal RenameOperationsOntSelection.vb. Replace PROGRAM with 1234_OP1 and you're done.
You can find the journal in the UGOPEN\SampleNXOpenApplications\.NET\CAM
If you do this alot, I would do 2 things to make your life easier:
1. In the setup template, create 50 programs, or more than you will need. Then they will always be there when you create a new setup.
2. Add a button to a toolbar that points to the journal.
Then you would create a new setup, pick NC_PROGRAM, Pick the button.
