I have a question about load options that I haven't really seen anywhere else (and I've searched as much as I can). One point first though, we don't use Teamcenter and likely aren't going to. So that is not a solution.
Anyway, what I want to do is this:
1) First I want to try to open all the files that may be in the local folder. By local folder I mean the folder that I load my assembly file from. Let's say C:\CustomerFiles for this file, but it could also be C:\Preliminary or what have you.
2) Then I want all reuse files to try to load from let's say C:\Reuse
Most people will suggest I presume set up search folders to point to C:\CustomerFiles and then C:\Reuse. That isn't feasible for us, as 1) Our C:\CustomerFiles folder has many directories and files in it, so search takes too long. I just want to load all the files that I know are in the directory I am loading them from, with the exception of reusable components. Is there a way to do this? And As Saved doesn't cut it, because we copy our files out of C:\CustomerFiles to a work in progress directory and then move them back when completed.
Thanks for any help. BTW, we are using NX 10.
After you move the files, you should consider fixing the references with the "ugpc.exe" and "ug_edit_part_names.exe"; after which the "as saved" option would probably work fine for you.
This is exactly the question I have for the same reasons.
To simplify it, how can I add "From folder" to the "From search folders" as an option?
Seems I am restricted to one or the other.
To make it clear :
Search from folder for opening assemblies, etc as we usually do.
Search "From search folders" for things like part families, reuse, etc.
I think it is one or the other, but not both, but I may be wrong.
