How to make new UDEs available in UI

Theorist

I created a new UDE in Post Configurator, saved the postprocessor, and closed Post Configurator. But after reapplying the Configuration and Template Set files, I don't see the new UDE when I try to add a Start Event. What am I missing?

What version of NX are you on?

In the NX10.0.3.5 MP5 - MP10 range there was a bug that, once you went in to add/edit UDEs, the UDE list would NOT change/update if you pick a different CAM configuration.  You had to exit NX & restart NX to see it.

 

Fixed before MP16 (I forget when, maybe MP12?)

I'm on NX 12.0.1.6. I did try exiting NX, but no luck.

Is the post loaded/ connected in the CAM-setup? Otherwise only standard UDE's will appear but not the special ones from the customized post.

If you need the UDEs visible despite of the loaded machine, you have to include them in the default UDE file.

The CDL files support INCLUDE directives. You have to place one into the file "MACH\resource\user_def_event\ude.cdl".
