Opening a part without Updating it?

Legend
Legend

Have I somehow set a default?  I've got this one part that will not open, I cannot wave link the geometry into another file. I'm stuck...

 

When I try to open the part file, It's updating features and I don't have the GM environment.

Hi @R_Newcomb,

 

What does the listing window report?

 

Have you tried disabling Load Interpart Data in your Assembly Load Options and delaying updates (Menu > Tools > Update > Interpart Update).

 

Regards, Ben

The ug_inspect utility has an option to extract the parasolid data from a file. I don't know if it attempts any sort of update before doing so. If all you need are the solids, this might work.

 

If the file is corrupt, all bets are off...

I don't think it's corrupt. Based on the status line the feature appears to be KF driven, so NX might be looking for a dfa file to update the part. Since this is a GM part the PDL Toolkit might also be required. I'd suggest giving the PDL support group of GTAC a call and see what they suggest.

The specified string contains a syntax error

Couldn't find object for GM_ProjectPointOnBody.
No function GM_ProjectPointOnBody.

 

followed by a bunch of code.

 

Isn't there a way to just open a file without it trying to update all of the features?

 

If open the top level part in the asm, I can see the part. but then I try to extract or wave link it, it is forcing an update. If I try to just open the component by itself, same thing.

odd thing, if I open the top-level part using partial loading, then exporting to Parasolid and Step with the export journal you helped me it with loads the components fully and exports them.
