Custom Item Types

Many companies create custom Item types but how many customize other types like:

  • CAE Item
  • Mfg0CMMInspect
  • MENCMachining
  • Others?

For those who do, please share the types you customize and give a brief description of how it has helped.

Re: Custom Item Types

The only type I would customize would be MENCTool, since we do have a separate naming rule for each tool assembly type and it would make applying the naming rules much easier from within NX.

Re: Custom Item Types

I'd be specifically interested in knowing who is doing any custom work with MENCMachining. We are currently using this for toolroom CAM data, which is somewhat overkill for what we are doing. I'd like to look into it a bit more (when one of those rainy days comes along) but we are functioning OK with it for now.

Re: Custom Item Types

As i too had this problem, i created an item under the OOTB item. where all the functionalities are inherited. One  can set display rules to OOTB item. Rest is self understandable.
