Automating Title Block

Gears Phenom Gears Phenom

As we look at the move to NX11, I want to also address some Tc/NX integration issues, one being to get the attribute MATERIAL to be controlled by NX, instead of Tc, so we can populate the drawing title block with it.  Since that will involve some TC admin work, I'd like to populate the drawing title block with some other things, such as the creators name, and the creation date.

 

I suspect there is already some attribute in Tc for these, since they diplay in the summary window, and I would have to have these mapped to pass thru to NX?

 

Is there a list of what is available in Tc, that we could map to NX?

You can create a mapping between NX/TC of attributes from TC to NX but also from NX to TC.

The default material attribute of NX is changed in NX10 to NX_Material

Doesn't "NX_Material" apply to the object material, and no the part material?  Looking at the NX11 customer defaults, this is how I interpret it.

if you assign a material to a solid of the part then this will be placed in the attribute NX_Material

if you want to assign a material you need to have a object (solid) if you use the assign materials.
