Shop Doc to Drawing Format?


Is there a way to export the shop documentation information for NX CAM to a NX drawing? I'm able to export to excel or html, but is there a way to populate a drawing with the same information? I'm looking to export the operation list and tool path pictures to an existing drawing format.

Note you can extend the post (and I believe shop docs) using API code (I believe it has to be compiled, not just a journal, but I might be wrong).

Creating the op list is just a tabular note.

Tool path pictures - you woul dhave to import the JPG (or PNG or ...) images onto the drawing.

But (IMO) you are using overkill here - there's a lot of overhead deleting/re-adding the above every time you post.

again, IMO, I would leave these as separate files.

Note there's also the new "Process instructions" stuff that can create a PDF of the results.
