Saving item as AltRep unsing NX Open

Hello everyone!


Is it possible to use NX Open to save item as an AltRep in NX under TC integration?

I might not even need an actual code right now, just a principal answer.


Re: Saving item as AltRep unsing NX Open

Have you tried recording a journal?

1) to see if it is possible at all interactively, and if so, the correct "Save As" procedure

2) to see if it records any calls, to guide you one what needs to be done in API


What NX/TC versions?

My configuration is TC9.1 and NX8.5.

When I posted the question, I haven't yet had time to try recording a journal. I tried now and it seems that it is possible, at least at the first glance.

Must admit that I don't find journals too useful - they write a ton of garbage along with the meaningful code and have tendency not to be able to record functions that you really need.

Has anyone successfully created altreps with NX Open, so that the answer could be definite yes?

Re: Saving item as AltRep unsing NX Open

In NX10, there is a new class called PartOperationCopyBuilder that performs various Save-as operations.  I have not specifically tested it with altreps.
