What is the importance of "NX_NON_MASTER" attribute. Why is the Component part automatically selected by the Base View operation?
When creating a master model drawing "NX_NON_MASTER=drawing" attribute gets created automatically and it plays an important role while placing a View. It creates an attribute called NX_NON_MASTER with value set to "drawing" to indicate it is a master model drawing.
When an assembly or a piece part is opened and a drawing is created from it using File->New command, the master model drawing is created. To support this workflow, the master model is added as a component under drawing the part. While creating base view in Drafting, this master model is automatically selected for view creation. User has an option to override this and manually select drawing part instead.
