NX 9 and TC 10
I created an Expression in our model seed file, called "Engrave", and it is linked to the attribute DB_Part_Name. Initially you can create some text, and link that text to "Engrave", and extrude into the part.
BUT, when you do a save as, and DB_Part_Name changes, the expression usually won't update, even after doing a 'Force Reload Attributes from Teamcenter'.
So what am I missing here? I was hoping it would automatically update, and save typing it manually.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Out of curiosity, how are you linking to the Part Attribute?
a) using a DesignLogic function in your expression formula, or did you
b) use the interactive tools to create the blue "system" expression linked to the Attribute?
The only way I knew how,
The attribute "DB_PART_NAME" exists, so in our model seed file, I created the expression "Engrave", which is a string type, and then used the 'Reference part attribute' button, and linked it to DB_PART_NAME. NX then created a system p# expression, which ties to the part attribute....that is blue, so I'll go with option B.
