NX11 ReUse Library or Pallet Pax File?

NX11 ReUse Library or Pallet Pax File?

NX11 ReUse Library or Pallet Pax File?

I have played with the Reuse Library some, but I have not figured out how to add components to it. I have some standard details that have all the drafting done and I would like to use the library to make it easy for modelers to get the ones they need and add them. But I can only figure out how to add bodies and features but not component files. Can you add component files to the Reuse Library?

I noticed when I add a body and feature through reuse library, it adds it to the part navigator as a ReUse Object, and the body and feature are members of it. I can drag them out and delete the Reuse Object, but is there a way to add them to the job where they come in directly to the file and not as Re-Use Objects?

Whether I go with the ReUse Library or just make a pax File and use Pallets, how would I go about making it so everyone's computer loaded them automatically?

RE: NX11 ReUse Library or Pallet Pax File?

I think the path statement fields for re-use custom libraries is in customer Defaults
Add the path, it will recognize any part with a KRX file pointing to it.
