Import into TC questions ? NX 9.0 -> 11.0

Genius

in NX11.0: Large assembly(500+pcs) import from native to TC:

1.) How to manually enter the revision in Import into TC-listing ? In NX 9.0 I could just easily write the revision: D,E,F right away into those pop-up windows. Now it is only "-" revision and it is greyed out to not allow to modify.

 

2.) What if there exist a "-" revision in TC already and I'm importing a newer "A" revision:

- Must the "-" revision be first flagged (=checkered flag) ?

- How to enter "update the old to a new revision" to Import into TC listing ?

 

3.) What does Numbering Source= Attribute mean ?

 

4.) When importing a large assembly and forced in mixing OS filename(=Create same name as in native: Some new and some exist already in TC ) and Part ID generator(=Create a fresh new TC name) why I must (Reset Attributes ->) double click each one to create the name ? Why does it not create these names automatically ? I have 500-700 parts assemblies and I must go through each part with double click to have the name created.

The ID/Name/Rev are assigned automatically according to default setting.

[Part ID generator, OS filename, Attribute].

After the lists  are Assigned by 'Part ID generator' or 'OS filename',

you cannot edit manually until 'Reset Attribute'.

- You can input revision manually before assign with 'Part ID generator' only.

 

2.) What if there exist a "-" revision in TC already and I'm importing a newer "A" revision: - Must the "-" revision be first flagged (=checkered flag) ? - How to enter "update the old to a new revision" to Import into TC listing ?

If ID/Rev (for imported list) is same with existing Item,

you can choose 'Exist Part Action' [Overwrite, Use Existing,or New Revision]

If you choose 'New Revision', the Revision number will be increased 

according to TC Revision numbering Rule.

 

3.) What does Numbering Source= Attribute mean ?

You can see Parts Attribute from File > Properties > Attribute.

You can use Attribute value to naming import lists.

For Exam, ${DB_PART_NO} will read and use value of 'DB_PART_NO' attribute.

- A Exported Item from TC must have DB_PART_NO and something another.

  So you can use the Attribute to overwrite to its original item again.

 

4.) When importing a large assembly and forced in mixing OS filename(=Create same name as in native: Some new and some exist already in TC ) and Part ID generator(=Create a fresh new TC name) why I must (Reset Attributes ->) double click each one to create the name ? Why does it not create these names automatically ? I have 500-700 parts assemblies and I must go through each part with double click to have the name created 

You can multi-select with Shift or Crtl Key and Assign all at one time.

If you click top of List No. column(top-left of table), you select all lists.

And select Assign from MB3 popup option.

Although you select all list, only empty lists assigned with new naming rule.

 

TIP)

1. You can copy table cells and paste it to excel sheet.

    After modify it from Excel, you can re-copy/paste it to NX import dialogue.

    (I use this tip to input Item name with OS file name.)

2. Although you assign all list by 'Attribute',

    If a part do not have specified attribute, or the part is Name only,    

     the list assigned by 'Part ID generator' instead 'Attribute'

There is much to learn from "Import assembly into TC".
Now I know some basics and I'm able to import these old native assemblies.
Big thanks
