Transfer drafting settings to other users

We are using NX10.0 and I have just setup all the settings on my pc for the customer defaults and also the drafting settings.

Ho can I make sure that all other users at work get the same settings?

Customer defaults can be exported and imported using Manage Current Settings (Eye icon located at upper right corner of customer defaults window)

Create the environment variable UGII_SITE_DIR on every system and point them to the same folder.
After this you see in the customer defaults that there is a site level.
Export your user settings and drafting settings and import them in the site level.

You can also create a startup script that creates the variables When starting. Here you can also set all your custom variables.
Place the script on every system and every one is looking to the same custom NX environment.

How do you export drafting settings that are in the drafting preferences?

You can't export the drafting preferences.

In the customer default you have also drafting standards that you can create and also import and export.

after setting the settings in you customer default you can go to the drafting preferences and inherit from the the customer defaults.

Did you mean Drafting Standard? ie you created your own Drafting Standard and you want to make that available to all your users?

if you are in the customer defaults then you can export 2 kind of settings.

  1. customer defaults
  2. Drafting standards

in the dialog of the drafting standard you can do a save as.

this will save the drafting standards to your NX user folder located in appdata/local/siemens/NX(version)

If you have the drafting standard file that you created you can import that one in that of the other users.

 

Or like i mentioned before you can set the UGII_SITE_DIR and save all the company defaults & drafting standars on the site level en then it will always be available for all the users. (if there is also the UGII_SITE_DIR been set)

If you want to share NX settings between users, I suggest you download the "NXCustom" setup (see the "NX Customization & Programming" forum here, in the "NXCustom utilities" thread pinned to the top of the list)

 

Download the version that corresponds to your NX version, un-compress it, and read the "readme.txt" at the top level.

 

This shows a pretty complete setup that works in both Native & Teamcenter environments.
