NX X Import Assembly into Teamcenter using OS File Name as Default Name

NX for Design



When importing an assembly into Teamcenter, you would like to use the option Part ID 
Generator as Numbering Source to generate the item ID. However, you still want to have 
OSFilename as item name. Can this be accomplished?


In NX10, in the native NX part file, you would need to manually create a part attribute by the title, DB_PART_NAME with the value as the OS Filename. Or you can can use a journal to automate this process.

In NX11, this process can be much simpler since you can type ${OS_FILENAME} for any attribute to use the file name on the operating system. So you can just replace the default  ${DB_PART_NAME} with ${OS_FILENAME} in the Default Name field.
If there are any naming rules associated with the Teamcenter item_id property (ID attribute in NX) that conflict with OS_FILENAME or DB_PART_NAME (depending on which is used), then an error message is displayed. For these failed items, you can override the ID naming method by manually typing the ID that matches the naming rule pattern or using auto assign.
