Creating an UDF with NX Open

Solution Partner Genius Solution Partner Genius

Hello everyone!

Is it possible to use NX Open to define an UDF? It should be possible, judging by documentation for the uf_modl_udf, but I have one reservation. The function UF_MODL_export_udf appears to be the thing, but in the description it is stated that "This routine works only with old-style Pre-V15 UDFs". Is this true? How to define a new-style UDF then?

Background. I have a project that requires building complex UDF's which are quite time-consuming to define because of many expressions. The idea is to write an utility which would automatically define an UDF based on a number of conditions defined in a prt file.

Any ideas?

There is a UserDefinedFeatureClass released in NX8.  Not entirely sure how to use it for creation.  Below is the link to an example on solution center.

I receivd confirmation from GTAC that definition of new-style UDF with NX Open is not currently possible. This is disappointing.
