(NX9) Any function like "Design Manager" in SE?

Hi everybody. I'm new in NX and previously I worked with SE ST9.

I want to copy parts in same assembly model, which the parts place all  around our server. Does NX provide a function like "Design Manager" in SE to "Pack-and-go" all parts under the same assembly model?

 

Thanks.

I think the clone assembly command inside NX can make the job. You would need to select the assembly to be cloned, input a folder and create a naming rule (for example add an space as suffix that would keep the existing names)

I got it. Thanks.

BTW, it requires me to assign new file name for all individual files. Can it be the same as the original file name just like what SE did?

You can create a naming rule (space as prefix for example) so this rule apply to every component

I use UGzip to "pack and go"
It'll grab all the components and you can select to remove the paths, so when you extract it. it can dump everything in one folder

you can find it in the NXcustom utility

You can go into the cloning section and select which components to keep original and which ones you want to clone. As mentioned already, you can also apply a pre-fix or suffix to the file names you want to "Clone".
