NX10 - UGPART Dataset naming - SequenceNumber

Pioneer

We are going to update from NX7.5 to 10 soon &

I am facing the following issue:

 

When creating a new UGPART dataset ( having the UGMASTER open #File#New#Drawing - selecting seedpart ) the dataset name is pre-fetched using

<item_id>-<item_revision_id>-1

where "1" seems to be some kind of sequence number, starting with "1" if this is the first UGPART dataset.

Refer to the attached image ( "Dataset Name" ).

 

In NX7.5 this is set to

<item_id>-<item_revision_id>

in our environment.

We only have _one_ UGPART dataset per ItemRevision and some custom programs also rely on that specific "correct" naming.

 

So I am looking for the spot where this behaviour can be controlled in NX10.

So far I could not find it ... does anybody have a hint about that ?

 

Thanx

Generally the sequence number can be omitted in NX, NX always loads the latest sequence.

 

The sequence is increased only if you change the properties of the dataset, like renaming it.

Thanks but I am not talking about the sequence number of the dataset.

 

I am talking of the name of the dataset.

The NX customer defaults let you specify a suffix to be appended to the dataset name of a drawing, by default this is _dr and an index is appended automatically.

 

So you would have to check your NX customer defaults.

The customer defaults work very well. I changed Customer Defaults --> Teamcenter Integration --> General --> File New --> Drafting Parts (value = dwg). However,  for all UGPART with manifestation relation the UGPART name is autogenerated with suffix "man1". If I select UGPART with specification relation, it generates suffix "dwg1".

 

Any method where, UGPART with manifestation relation can have "dwg" suffix in name.

may I ask where you change the customer defaults? In the TC preferences?
Which preference would that be?

Thank you

Changed the customer defaults at SITE Level.
Also, the Customer Default can be located here : Customer Defaults --> Teamcenter Integration --> General --> File New --> Drafting Parts (value = dwg)

These are not TC Preferences. These are NX customer defaults.
