How to remove the default NX Part filename from the output filename when using the Generate Group Output

RE: Post Builder

This is just an idea, try to make an If condition. For example, if exists mom_parent_group_name, it will output mom_part_name, else return.


RE: Post Builder

I understand what you are suggesting, but where should I define the IF/Else commands? Currently, this is what I have done within Post Builder 1) select Output --> Other Options 2) activated Generate Group Output ... resulting in the postprocessor output filename to be ... For ex: 230496SK01_Op_Seq_30_3101 .... 230496SK01_Op_Seq_30 is the name of my NX Part file ... 3101 is the name of the Program folder (group name) ... and, the naming nomenclature continues for the rest of the Program folders ... see the Attachment file = Output_filename.xlsx

RE: Post Builder

If I am not wrong, from your explanation, sounds it like you want to create the outputs in the separate output of the .nc files, right?

Here are just a suggestion if you want to try.
Just make attributes into program group and Operation( if possible). The attributes will be called by post builder and put into nc file name.
