Anybody knows how to add material in Part Families?
I attached to model a material by using Asign Material command, but when I choiced Material collumn in the Part Families command, the alert shows like image below:
NX 12 | TC 11.4 | Win10
Solved! Go to Solution.
As the message states, naming the solid body is the key here. You can assign a name by right-clicking on the solid body (specifically the solid body, and not a feature) and adding it here in the "General" tab:
Once you've done that, the body will be available for inclusion in the part family spreadsheet when you choose Material from the Available Columns option menu:
...and if you set up your spreadsheet something like this:
Then the part family children will take on the appropriate new density based on the identified material:
Hope that helps!
