Track Drawing Changes - auto save data?

Gears Esteemed Contributor Gears Esteemed Contributor

I could swear I saw this somewhere (customer default? preference?), but now I can't find it.  Looked in the solutions database and didn't find anything.

NX10.0.3.5, TC11.2

 

Is there some way to automatically save the drawing compare data (baseline snapshot?) every time a drawing is saved?

I don't want to have to rely on users creating the permanent "snapshot" data before a part is released.

Looking to compare the prior revision of a drawing to the current revision.

 

Thanks...Ken

Ken, it looks like there is a utility program to generate a snapshot. You could add a routine to the release process to make sure that it gets run.

We have a program that does several things during a drawing release.  Creating a snapshot is one of them.  That would be gret if there was an automatic or version to version check vs creating a snapshot at every release.

Maybe you saw the "save Drawing CGM data" Checkbox in the save options?

Scott - your link doesn't work for me.

Could you post the title of the article or the path in the table of contents or ?

Thanks...Ken

That's different functionality than Track Drawing Changes.

nevermind, finally found it.

Note docs point to UGII_BASE_DIR\ugii\ugsamples\TrackDrawingChanges, but it is really UGII_BASE_DIR\ugsamples\TrackDrawingChanges (no "\ugii\" folder)
