Drafting - On replacing templates

Is it possible to replace the drafting template used to create a dwg with a new edited one (and then see the edited changes)??. Thank you in advance.

NX Drafting has a built-in Drawing Compare Tool. You find it in the Drafting Tools Ribbon. Command finder will also help you locate the commands. Do the following:

  • Open the template part
  • use "Create Snapshot Data" - this will create a graphical hidden representation of your current drawing.
  • do the changes (delete old objects import the new desired data)
  • Use "Overlay CGM" command to toggle old objects on and off.

You will be able to visually locate the changes.


Hope that helps.
