Going from the model to the drawing

Honored Contributor

Using NX with Teamcenter...

 

Users ask about this one a lot.  If you have a model open, and then want to open the drawing, is there a quick and easy way to open it?  Other than going to Teamcenter and searching or browsing for it?  Ideally they would like to select the model (on screen or in the assy navigator), and right click open drawing (or get a list of drawings if there is more than one).

 

I'm not aware of any way, but figured I'd ask, since my TC experience is limited.

Here is a journal that may help.

 

p.s. I am not the author of this code, but it looks like it would be helpful.

Any updates on this ?
i.e In managed mode, i have the model open in the session,  ( maybe opened from the history tab ,- no search "tabs" neither in TC nor NX open )

 - and would , with the least amount of clicks, like to open the drawing. ( of this the same item.)

Any tips ?

 

Regards,

 Tomas

The journal above.  We use a variation of it, adjusting to fit our files, and I creted a button for on the toolbar.  One click, and the drawing opens.  See Tweaking Code thread.

 

Note, since moving to NX 1867, we have noticed that sometimes it doesn't open the drawing, but it hasn't been consistent enough to determine a pattern yet.

I am also interested. As TC "knows" if there is a drawing file in the same item revision, it should be able to open it and also NX managed should.

World, prepare.
You can now forget Area 51, there's far bigger secrets hidden in Orange County!
