Bringing model information into new file

Hello AgainSmiley Happy

 

I have models which were created in old version of NX. (NX6.0 to NX9.0). Now I'm using NX10.0.

 

Models created in old versions need to be copied to NX10.0 (In Teamcenter 10.0 environment)

 

In old files, they have used Fixed axis, and fixed datum planes to create sketches and model was built using those sketches.

 

I have been told to do copy of all features in old NX's feature tree , and paste it in New NX10.0 seed file.

 

It was working fine for small files.

 

Now for one of the file, when I select all features in feature tree and do paste in new NX file, It is unable to refernce some of the edges for edge blends. So it is creating a linked body at first in the timestamp, and starts creating the features.

 

So I tried with alt approach, in selection filter turned on solid body, then selected solid body, and tried to copy it. Nx is saying "Features and non-features cannot be copied in a single operation and ...... Plz refer screenshot". and sketches are losing its refernce and becoming underconstraint. (In one of the sketch, it was fully constraint before now it is asking 70 constraints. Dimensions were given to the fixed axis I believe. Just to give the seriousness of the problem). I really have no idea, where else it would lead to.

 

I have attached few screenshots

 

Could you suggest what is the best way of hangling such kind of lagacy data migrations ?

 

Thanks

 Hi Sathya,

I would rather use a REFILE (refile it to NX10 or the latest NX version you will be using) for this rather than copying and pasting. Below is the link you can refer to.

Look for the "Refile" in the NX documentation.

Refiling

Run refile

Use cases for refile

 

If you want to import assembly or multiple parts from a OS folder into manged NX, use File > Import Assembly into Teamcenter.

Did you try file -> import -> part?

  1. Create a new part in NX 10
  2. Select File -> Import -> Part
  3. Choose the legacy part
  4. Define the origin for the geometry
  5. OK
  6. Cancel

This should enable you to bring all the data from the old file.

Thanks for the input @Abeinjapan

 

The problem with that approach is, It would retain the template, and other preference settings.

 

I want all the settings that I currently having it in the latest template file, and the original model information as well..

Hiding refile options is, in my opinion, a bad thing.

Ask the administrator to do the refile on your part for you. And then on the next part and the next...

Eventually it might become obvious this is the correct way to bring parts up to the latest version.
