Hi everyone, 


I need to change revision in draft  2D in draft table but I am not sure how I can do it. There are some atributes responsible for that? I hope you are able to help me. 


Best regards

Guessing...(you aren't too clear on what you are looking for)

- you have a drawing

- in the title block (somewhere) there is a "Revision" field

- you want to update that field


1) Is that field filled in by an attribute?  or just manual text?

- if manual text, you have to edit it manually

2) If an attribute, which one?
Note there can be a revision of the PART, or a revision of the drawing SHEET.


Drawing sheet revision is controlled by the sheet (right-click on the border, or the sheet in the PNT, -> edit sheet -> somewhere on the dialog is a "revision" field.


Part revision is typically (in Teamcenter) the DB_PART_REV attribute, and controlled by TC.

Native mode, there is a way to define revisions (for load options) but I don't know if that revision is available as an attribute inside NX.


I'm not fond of using the drawing sheet revision for the rev, as each sheet could then be at a different revision.  But if that is your company standard, go for it.


Hope something in the above helps you out...

Hi @lukipap,


OOTTB, the sheet revision is driven by the system attribute: <W@$SH_SHEET_REVISION>.  This text field is embedded in a Title Block definition on Layer 256.

To change the value, right click on the sheet in the Part Navigator and choose Edit Sheet and enter in your desired Revision:
