Machinery library

Pioneer

I have installed the machinery library in NX 10.0.3 with MP6

I would like to edit a couple of the files

for example, the socket head cap screws I would like to add face colors so when the subtract the pockets are a certain color

and I would also like to edit the dowel pins and give them a through hole in positive Z and a drill size in negative Z when creating the pockets

Is this possible in the existing files?

Thanks

I haven't touched this library in a long time. But as I recall these are part family parts. You would need to make the changes to the part family template. But I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to modify them. I'd just recommend keeping a backup. Also, I'm not sure how often the library is update so you may have issues with overwrites when upgrading..just something to keep in mind.

I got it, the directory didn't have the proper permissions to save
