Hello guys! I'm new to the forums; used I-Deas for a few years, switched to NX 2 years ago.
Ok, so here is my problem:
I have a parent assembly part located in a folder. All sub-assembly parts are located in sub-folders of said folder. This isn't a problem on my computer because in "Assembly Load Options" I set "Load" to "From Search Folders," have added all the necessary sub-folders, and "Save to File" these load options.
This will be an inconvenience when I deliver these files to my customer. My customer will either have to:
(A)modify his folder structure to match mine or
(B)modify the load option file to his desired location
My customer might then pass these files on to other companies/agencies (who aren't proficient with NX) and I'm afraid these steps won't be followed.
Thanks to GTAC, I was able to condense my load options file to include only the parent folder by using "...". (If not familiar with "..." NX will search for and then load parts from the parent folder and any sub-folders.)
Why can't "..." be an option for "From Folder" load options? For instance, load my parts "From Folder" and then a toggle for "Include Sub-Folders." It would simplify the process and negate the need for the load options file.
Please help! Thanks
