Hello

 

WHile working in Nx 11 Assembly while try to load part (It is displayed inside the assembly) it shows the error message as `This component cannot be made visible. It is in an excluded reference set.'.

 

Anyone can tell me how to avoid this error message.

Dear @Sekars

 

You can right click on that component and in "Replace Reference set" menu select something other than "Empty". Forexample "Model" or "Entire Part". Then you can load your part.

Hi @Sekars,

It is not an error, just an information dialog. 
This will be presented if you try to load/open a component with an empty reference set. One possibility that parent of such component is loaded with a reference that does not contain the component or component reference set is set to empty exclusively. Either change reference set of the assembly/subassembly or component directly and save the assembly.

I run into this all the time and it's very frustrating.  As previously said you can change the reference set of the parent part, most likely to ENTIRE PART.  The problem with this, is that now your screen is filled with all of the junk that was used in the parent part, every datum, surface, sketch, etc....

To avoid all the clutter, just add the component to the parent's current reference set. If this is something that you run into often, consider turning on the "add components automatically" option for your reference sets.
