Master part full path on drawing

Hello everyone!

 

Is it possible to display full path of the master part on the non-master drawing sheet in native mode? The <W@$SH_MASTER_PART_NAME> attribute only shows part name. Surely it is possible to utilize some sort of NX Open automation to achieve this, but maybe some other way exists?

Hi @Scaffold,

 

You could try the following (note that changes to the path will not automatically update the expression value, you will have to use Update for External Change):

 

path to file.png

 

Now that you have the expression in the master, you can either create an attribute in the master and use the Relationship option in the Note editor to create a link from the drawing to the master, using "Object Attribute", or create a new interpart expression in the drawing to the master and refer to the interpart expression in the note editor.

 

Regards, Ben

Thanks for suggestion. I can see that it is workable, but I'm afraid it is too cumbersome for the ordinary users to follow without mistakes, especially given the requirement for the manual update...
