When you Assign Material, you can create filters, to narrow down the options.

 

we would like to share the filters, instead of every user creating them, we just share the set of filters, is this possible?  anyone know where the filter info is stored?

It gets saved to the registry.  Export "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\NX\11.0\General\MaterialList\Filters" to a .reg file and share that file with the other users.

Hi Ben,

exist an ER to save the filter in the xml file. I remember I opened an ER to the NX8.5, when you have rewrote the Assign Material interface.

Thank you...

Hi Ben,

this ER is mine and I asked : 

'I need this information to extend this custom filter to all Nx user.

It will be better to save this filter in the material database and when e new filter is added, this filter will be show in the default filter as 'METAL, PLASTIC, OTHER, ETC..)'

I didn't asked to export / import.

If you accept an ER, doesn't change the customer request.

Thank you...

Hi @cubalibre00,

I apologize for the confusion.  Your ER description still reads: "New filter option in Material assign" and your detailed description of your request remains the same.  The ER description I used came from development's response when your IR was originally converted to a PR; the PR Final Response reads:

 

The material database is likely not the best place to store filters, I don't think the MatML schema supports such a concept.

It's a enhancement request to give the ability to export/import a filter or sets of filters through NX

The PR was then converted to an ER.
