NX X Default dataset naming

NX for Design



  • Automatic Names for New Parts, File Name Separator
  • Automatic Names for Non-masterParts, Drafting Parts
are not found in the Customer defaults as in NX11


These customer defaults are removed and replaced by these Teamcenter preferences
to set the default naming pattern for the UGPART and UGALTREP datasets:

  • TC_NX_UGPART_create_pattern

  • set to: ${ItemID}-${RevisionID}-dwg{1:1}

  • TC_NX_UGALTREP_create_pattern

  • set to: ${ItemID}-${RevisionID}-alt{1:1}

The 1:1 is incremental numbering for the version. The first 1 is the start number. The second 1 is the number of digits to display with zeros in front as needed. For example, 3 would display as 001.

These preferences provide a default naming pattern only; you can ignore the default naming pattern and manually enter any value for the dataset name.
