Hello, everyone.

 

I am learning robotic machining on the ''learning advantage'', but I can't move on at this step. Because my ''import machine kit'' button is greyed out. I dont know the reason

I snipped my NX windows down below. 

 

Thank you verymuch

Solved!

 

I just copy the whole MACH fold to a new file folder, and reset the environment variables to UGII_CAM_BASE_DIR=C:\Temp\MACH\.

Never copy the entire MACH folder, you will find yourself in big trouble shortly.

The best practice is to only copy the "MACH\resource" folder and point the variable UGII_CAM_RESOURCE_DIR to it.

Please check if the related file in your environment is write protected. That will cause they greyed out status.

..MACH\resource\library\machine\ascii\machine_database.dat

I tried to just copy resource folder, but as a result I can't even start my manufacturing and machine tool builder application.

Have you also removed UGII_CAM_BASE_DIR pointing to the wrong location.

BTW, do not change files contained in the installation folder of NX, you will really get into trouble then.

If you need to create a customisable configuration use the NXcustom package, available through a search in this community, and follow the instructions included in that package to be successful.
