NX 11 material atribute was reset ...

NX 11 material atribute was reset ...

NX 11 material atribute was reset ...

Hello Everyone,

After I moved to NX 11 from NX 10, every time I put some model from Moldwizard library I receive this annoying message:


The Material Attribute was reset because it did not match the material assignment. This action was taken based on your Customer Default setting. 

I have this setting in customer defaults"
Gateway -> Material / mass -> Attributes:

And in Shared tooling option -> General:

to prevent NX to change Material to Material_tooling.

Anyone can help me solve this?

With best regards

RE: NX 11 material atribute was reset ...

We had this on a few parts when we went to NX12 from NX10. It seemed to only affect parts that had originated in NX8.5 - somehow the material definition was removed in NX10 but the attribute remained and the bodies retained their density. Starting in NX11 this mismatch is tidied up by clearing the attribute. There is no option to request permission for the attribute value to be removed.

RE: NX 11 material atribute was reset ...

I have some parts created in NX 6, but lately I have saved them in NX 8.5. I have some parts with set value to variable "Material", some are sets by excel in Mold Wizard. I thinking, what I have to change in customer defaults or in environments variables to prevent this message from shown up. Because after It's shows up, nothing in part is deleted from part preferences?

In NX 10, Siemens improved BOM, so to avoid problems between material from BOM and from "assign material" command, We have to change "Attribute title alias" to Material1. That helped, because before when We created drafting, NX automatically change Material to NX_Material in table, so this value was empty. Now in NX11 there is another move forward to Material_tooling, but I don't wanna to rewrite every table I have to new value, and there won't be backward for drawing made before change to NX 11.

With best regards
