Drawing booklet - customized drawing template

Pioneer

Hello,

 

I would like to insert customized drawing sheets into the drawing booklet. I had placed my own customized templates into the

C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 11.0\DRAFTING\automation\templates

folder but I could not choose these templates when I started the drawing booklet wizard.

Is there any palette file I have to update? Or what is the correct method?

 

Thanks for your help,

Zsolt

What is displayed in the "new" dialogs is conrolled by the .PAX files in (for NX11)

%UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGII\templates

(for NX12 some of them are moved to other folders)

 

- ugs_drawing_templates.pax: controls "File -> New -> Drawing" tab (creating a new master-model drawing part)

- ugs_sheet_templates.pax: controls what is available in when creating a new drawing _sheet_ in the existing part

 

 The "nxdm_*" variants of those files are used to control what is seen in Teamcenter.

 

If you are going to modify things, I would suggest you download the "NXCustom" environment for NX11 - see here for all NX versions:

https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/NX-Programming-Customization-Forum/NXcustom-Utilitie...

 

Read the "readme" files to understand what is going on.

You can put this on a network drive, and all users will then see the same customizations.

Hello,

 

Thanks for the reply, but my question was not refer to the general templates. I already have the templates and the two pax files.

 

I'm trying out the Drawing automation - Drawing Booklet and I would like to put those customized templates into the palette of Create Drawing Booklet Wizard.

7./Tip says to modify the Automation_OOTB_Rule.cxx by adding the customized templates but it seems to be not enough or I have done something wrong

 

Thanks,

Zsolt
