Unit convert utility

Genius

All,

 

I know there is a more current one out (NX10/Win10 Compatible?). Had it at my last job... forgot to drag it with me.

 

Where can I go to download it?

 

For converting all NX files in a folder, to or from... english or metric.

 

Thanks,

Hello Paul
The conversion utility is included in NX Standard Installation.
With NX10 it should be in /UGII folder and in NX11 in /NXBIN folder.

You should use the NX Command prompt for the execution of this utility.
Here is the description

C:\Siemens\NX11.0\NXBIN>ug_convert_part
usage: ug_convert_part [options]

options:
[-in <filename>] converts file <filename> to inches
[-mm <filename>] converts file <filename> to millimeters
[-d] sets the current directory as the source
[-d <dirname>] sets directory <dirname> as the source
[-o <dirname>] sets existing directory <dirname> as the destination
[-s] traverses subdirectories
[-u] converts udf files
[-uo] converts udf files only
[-x] exports the expressions of the converted part
[-y] converts entire assembly

regards
Heinrich

Hi Paul,

 

Somebody gave me this one, the thing I like is it will convert in the same version as the existing file, I had a couple of other ones and they always ended up with the file in the latest version of NX installed. I have several versions installed so it was a problem.

Yes I have this one too. But I was pretty sure I had one with an updated interface.

... Left it at the last gig

 

Untimately the problem looks to be with using the unit convert in Win10. Known bug!

How to convert metric NX files to inch files (or vica-versa)

 

  1. In MS Windows, Start, All Programs, UGS NX x, NX Tools, Command Prompt.
  2. Type ug_convert_part -in (to convert to inches) or ug_convert_part -mm (to convert to metric).
  3. From Windows Explorer, drag the file you wish to convert, and drop it in the Command Prompt (dos) window.
  4. Hit "Enter".
  5. Your part should convert, watch the command prompt window for verification.
