Copy NX file in TeamCenter to existing Teamcenter file

Copy NX file in TeamCenter to existing Teamcenter file

Copy NX file in TeamCenter to existing Teamcenter file

Is it possible to save as an NX file in TeamCenter to an existing file in Teamcenter?
For example I want to save
the NX file (drawing and everything else) in Teamcenter MM12345/3 To MM98765/4 in Teamcenter
(the main file is in Rev 3 and the copied file is an existing Teamcenter number in Rev 4)

RE: Copy NX file in TeamCenter to existing Teamcenter file

It should be ,depending on your NX / TC Versions , and, if the Teamcenter is set up to allow this. ( the action is Save as xyz- something, blocked here.)
- but, it might be easier to cheat... smile

In Teamcenter, things are not what they appear at first glance,
I Assume that you have Items and Item revisions and under that you have "the files". ?
These "files" are "datasets" and not files, each contain multiple files and or meta data in some way.
You can ( hopefully) right-click the NX model dataset and see "Named References" ?
Select that and you should see several files and some other things such as preview etc , AND the actual NX file.

The cheat is that one can export and Import to these "Named references" . But, if you are about to replace one part in one dataset, keep a copy , and ,
try this method on some test files first..
Notice that to delete a file from a dataset,. you need to check it out first.


Never try to teach a pig to sing. I wastes your time and it annoys the pig.smile

Thanks Toost, I know most of the ways to "cheat" in NX, but TeamCenter always throws me a curve.
