Hi @bauler,

 

Are you trying to update or create all of the members of a part family?  Or am I completely misunderstanding what you're trying to do?  Can you explain in more detail?

 

Regards, Ben

I need to create all member in the same time.

 

My customer will use Machinery Library from NX in Teamcenter.

 

They already has your ID, so I've tested to edit excel and to fill DB_PART_NO column for create member with customer's ID. But I need to created all Library befora migrate and import your legacy data.

To create all of the Members belonging to a Part Family, open the Part Family Template's spreadsheet, click and drag to select the rows of the members that you want to create and select "Add-ins > Part Family > Create Parts".

 

Is your question how to create all of the members for all of the Part Family Templates all together, rather than each individual Part Family one by one?  If that's the case, I don't think it's possible.

I agree with @BenBroad, I have not found a way to create them all, so I have a spare computer that I log in to, and have it create teh family member parts.  It's a lot of parts, and in doing it this way during "spare time", is still taking weeks, for everything in the Machinery LIbrary.  A way to automate that, would be great.  ER maybe?

@bauler that sounds painful...   even selecting all the family members in the spreadsheet to create, can take a few hours on our system, if the number of parts is high (some bolt families for example)

I agree with you, but it will be once time. So to me is ok, but depend what you need to do your idea will be interesting.

This will be poor Bauler - typing in ID's one-by-one.

 

Folks, we're going to have to check in on him from time to time....
