NXcustom for NX11.0 (NX110custom)

[ Edited ]

Hello All,

 

Please find attached, the NXcustom for NX11.0 Revision C.
 

There have been some changes in the architecture of NX11.0 that required specific changes in how NX is started.

The UGII_ROOT_DIR is depricated and all path's pointing to that folder from your side will need some adjustments.

 

Additionally it is now possible to deploy a predifined column configuration of the Assembly, Part and Operation Navigator.

 

More details of the changes can be found in the about.txt

 

If there are any ideas for improvements, please feel free to contact me directly by Email:

Regards,

Gerrit Koelewijn
 
Revision B has additional support for CMM Inspection.
Revision C has an added check if the NX path from the registry is correct.

Additional i have a question to the community.

Is there anyone who ever has decided to use the CAMauxiliary (MACH\auxiliary) folder in NXcustom?
This folder contains mostly code and has very little that can be configured. I am considering to remove this in an update.

Gerrit Koelewijn

Good question.  MACH\auxiliary used to be used for GPM/MDFG and initially for FBM.

Hi Gerret,

 

Are there any issues transferring files from nx9 custom to nx11 custom? I would like to move all my existing customizations to the latest environment without having to recreate. Will I lose any functionality by doing so?

 

Thanks.

Hello nsmith,

 

It is possible to do so, but you will miss things.

An upgrade to a higher version will always require a comparison.

I usualy do the following:

  • Compare the OOTB folders and files of the old an new Version of NX
    This will tell you what has changed between the 2 versions.
  • For each difference you need to consider if merging the new functionality into your old config or or merging four changes into the new OOTB config.
    • Some folders, like CAMresource contain here and there also scripts to access libraries etc.
      unless you did extensive edits to those files i would always suggest to use the newer OOTB ones.
    • Additionally, there might be data structure changes in database files. Your data must then be updated to meet the new structure.

In general there have been changes to all the scripts that reside in the NX110custom and the NX110library.

The changes are required to support the new location for executables in NX11.

Because of de deprication of UGII_ROOT_DIR there have also been edits to the NX110env.dat file.

 

In general it is a good idea to compare everything.

 

So it is possible, but not with just a copy and paste.

No I don't believe I have used the CAMauxiliary folder to customize anything.

Hello Mark,

 

Looks like you are mistaken MACH\custom with MACH\auxiliary

I am encountering inconsistent behavior between using the NX11 custom environment from a local drive and a mapped network drive. The two things I have noticed so far when the environment is on a mapped drive:

 

  1. The Menuscript "edit_ug_main.men" does not appear to run. I use a customized title that shows when I use a local environment but not one on a mapped drive.

  2. The custom file templates are not used when creating a new file.

The setup is I have two machines, each with a out-of-the-box installa
