Associative views from master model drawing with "flattened" component

Builder

Dear Community

 

I am looking for a way to export drawings from one NX User to another in a different company. The goal is to export associative drawings in master model concept fashion. However I do not like to export the component feature history with this, I'd like the component to contain only the relevant body for drawing view creation without any features or feature history thereof.

 

Can anybody guess if such an option exists in NX?

Hi Mascaritas,

Just confirm you want to export the part and the drawing or just the part. Does it have to have the same part number for the other recipient? There is an option in NX to remove all parameters from a body so you are just left with that, no feature history. The drawing would remain associative to the body.

 

Regards

Dear Paul

 

I'd like to export two parts: a drawing in .prt format and also the component in .prt as well

 

I have tried the same process as proposed already and it seems to works. I am now trying to figure out if this can be automated somehow. I assume there is no out of the box function like "defeature all components" ...

Assuming only 1 solid body per part, it is a one step process.

If you want to automate it - try recording a journal.

You will have to remove the journal "stickiness" and (maybe ) loop thru all  the solid bodies, but it shouldn't be too difficult.
