Replace Component can't see reuse library

Hello all,

 

When you have configured a reuse library and that is pushed to all users you can't see this in the replace component window.

 

In the routing application this will be visible but in the modeling/assembly environment you don't see this.

When you press open part you are going to the teamcenter environment and you don't see the NX reuse folders.

The Folder in teamcenter is only visible in one user and we don't want to pushed the folder also to every ones home folder in TC.

How is your environment set up for Reuse, do you have the paths set in the Customer Defaults?

Yes i have set the customer default that the folder of the Infodba is pushed to all the users.

 

butt when i use the command replace component it don't show the reuse library folders.

 

if you use the replace part feature from routing, that one is showing the reuse library folders.

Should be nice if that is also in the replace component feature.

Edit Reusable Component will get you back to the krx Dialog.

Add this moment we don't have part families.
So the krx file is useless at this moment.

Hi @ruud_vandenbrand,

As you've found, it's not possible to access the Reuse Library using Replace Component as it is using Replace Part in the Routing applications.  We have several existing ER's already submitted requesting the functionality you are looking for.  For example:

 

ER 1966633: Want to select Reuse Library Member from Replace Component dialog

ER 8329088: Ability to replace a reusable component with another reusable component

 

Your workarounds are to either search for the physical Reuse Library part using the 'Browse' option on the Replace Component dialog, or add the part to yout assembly from the Reuse Library and then use the Replace Component command to select that part from the list of Loaded Parts.  Being concerned that replacing a component this way would remove the associations, I checked and can confirm that "Edit Reusable Component" is still available for the replacement part and it remains constrained.

 

Regards, Ben
