NX11 Family Part (Hoping for a 1 in a billion chance)

NX11 Family Part (Hoping for a 1 in a billion chance)

NX11 Family Part (Hoping for a 1 in a billion chance)

I dont see any way this is possible but I am hoping anyway...

I was going to make a family part master for some simple Switch Brackets. There are several different types of brackets with no real way to name them so someone would know which bracket they need by the description. Basically it would be almost a crap-shoot to guess which one they need.

Unless there is some way to get a small image to show up in the selection box that pops up when you are adding a Family part?

Like I said. One in a billion chance.

RE: NX11 Family Part (Hoping for a 1 in a billion chance)

That's standard re-use stuff so no problem.

Your going to have a spreadsheet drive all the dimensions so...
The last Column in the spreadsheet should #bitmap
That Column contains the name of the bitmap you want to use for that part selection.

Just store the bitmap with the rest of the re-use data: *.xls, *.krx, *.prt

Of course, your talking part family. So that would mean an internal spreadsheet.
I suspect it still work the same way tho.
If you don't specify a path to the bitmap its assumed its in the same folder as the part.
