NX12 WCS Origin changes workpart

NX12 WCS Origin changes workpart

NX12 WCS Origin changes workpart

Something new and annoying in NX12, whenever I select an entity for wcs origin in an assembly, it changes the workpart to owning entity. Any way to turn that off?

RE: NX12 WCS Origin changes workpart

I fount it. Had to turn off "Allow Automatic Work Part Change" In Customer Defaults.

RE: NX12 WCS Origin changes workpart

I'm not sure about NX12, but in 1867 you can toggle it on/off on the fly. It's the light blue button, with small orange cube, next to the 'Entire Assembly' drop down filter. Sorry, I should have circled it.


NX, Teamcenter 11.6

RE: NX12 WCS Origin changes workpart

Interesting.... Mines grayed out. Maybe since I set it in Customer Defaults.
