Change the default weld symbol size in Drafting

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello!

 

I want to change the default weld symbol size (Symbol Size Factor) from the current value of 3 to a more reasonable 1. How do I change this parameter?

 

I know that my NX admin team can do this, but I'm asking this here since that team is not easily accessible.

Hi @Arv,

all our customer default are shared and our new drafting point to shared customer default.

In the customer default there is the setting.

Thank you...

Hey @cubalibre00,

 

I tried changing that setting after setting the standard to Custom.

 

Even after I restart NX after changing this setting, the same huge symbol appears when I create a new weld symbol.

 

Also, could you please show me where I can find those shared customer defaults that you mentioned in your post?

Hi @Arv,

verify if in the customer default you have this setting:

As this is a drafting setting, it is likely a "part" (vs. "session") customer default.

Part level defaults are only used when creating a new part FROM SCRATCH (i.e. File -> New dialog, "Blank" option)

So if you are starting with a blank part, then you need to set in customer defaults.

 

If you are starting using a template part (You don't say, but if you are using Teamcenter you pretty much HAVE to use an existing template part) then you have to fix the setting in the template part (which you may not have access to)

 

Until you get the customer default and/or seed part(s) fixed, you might want to record a journal to replay & fix this every time you open a new part.

Hey @Ken_A,

 

Your way should be the proper way to fix my issue, but the above solution hotfixed my problem for now. I dont need weld symbols in a lot of my drawings, but I need a lot of them at once when I do need them.

 

I'm just waiting for a decent number of issues to pile up before I send them over to my admin team (they are offshore and have a non-english background, so not very accessible as I mentioned previously). As you suggested, I'll add this template modification to that list.

 

Thank you!
