I am trying to make a drawing from the attached part in NX 12. If I open the part and press File -> New -> Drawing and select "Stand-alone Part" it works perfectly. But If I select "Reference Existing Part" insted, no views appear on the drawing (see attached file). If I select Application -> Drafting it also works without problems.
I have tried a lot of settings, but can't figure out why it doesn't work. If I use any other partfile than the one attached, "Reference Existing Part" works without problems, so it seem to be a part-specific problem. Any ideas as to why this is the case?
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the part file you have provided solid features belongs to layer 9.
When you create drawing part using 'Reference Existing Part', make sure that layer 9 is selectable/visible in the drawing before creating views.
I experimented with a lot of things before I got it to work. While inside the View Creation Wizard I switched to View -> Layer Settings and made layer 9 the work part. Then I updated View Creation Wizard and it worked. Thanks for the help!
