Drawing Component - Replace Component option back in NX 11

Genius
Genius

I know in the past it was possible to use "Replace Component" on Drawing Components, and then the option was removed, because it was not supported from Siemens (or at least this is the way I remember it).

 

Today we were looking something in NX 11, and we found that "Replace Component" was available again for Drawing Components.

 

Does anybody know anything about this option beeing available again for users?

 

Thank you

I just tested NX11.0.1 and I do not see the option. The NX11.0.1 documentation continues to state "... you cannot use the Replace Component command on a drafting component".
Which version of NX11 are you using, and can you post a screenshot of the popup menu showing "Replace Component"?

this is NX 11 for Daimler.  I think it's NX 11.0.0 plus a specific patch for them (D3)

Not seeing it in NX11.0.0. D3. Maybe it's something unique to the Daimler environment, as I only have access to the build, not the environment files.

This topic discussion explains all about 'Replace Component' option for Drawing/Drafting component. Prior to NX 9 it was available.

I still don't see a way to replace a drafting component in NX11.0.2.7 mp5.

We have alot of drawings with multiple components, some modeling and some drafting components.

 

Please tell me how to replace a drafting component in a drawing file.

There is a workaround that we were able to find.
If you add the same component in modelling and then replace the model component (making sure replace all occurences is turned on), the drafting component will be replaced as well.

The video below should explain how that's done.
