How to attach attributes to part in UG

How to attach attributes to part in UG

How to attach attributes to part in UG

(OP)
I am new user to UG. I have used Catia before. In catia it is very easy to attach attributes to the part. I couldn't figure out how to attach attributes to the part in Unigraphics. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

RE: How to attach attributes to part in UG

What version of UG? The attribute menu changed in NX from where it had been in previous versions.

In V18:
from the main menu bar: Format-Attribute-Part...
Assign
Enter Attribute Name
Enter Attribute Value
(Only string data may be assigned to a part)

In NX V1:
from the Assembly Navigator Flyout
RMB on the Partname
Select Properties
In the Properties table, select Attributes
Enter the Title and Value in the boxes at the bottom

Thanks Ben

I am using UG NX and your tips worked perfectly.

RE: How to attach attributes to part in UG

Ben,

I use Attributes for Part Name and ASM ID number for my assembly components. Is it possible to write relations for strings where you can set Assembly Component Name to equal a Part attribute such as _ASM_ID which is a Part Attribute so that I can order my components by Component number in the Assembly Navigator?

Even easier. Add a column to the ANT, use the attribute name CALLOUT and it will have the sysetm defined CALLOUT in your ANT. Or just add your own attributes to the ANT. I have mine to show the fields that we put into our parts lists. I can see if all the valuse are correct without even creating the PL.

RE: How to attach attributes to part in UG

You can also apply attributes with the Reference Set function (assemblies+reference sets..). This is especially useful if you have "shown" and "opposite" parts occupying the same model:
eg. Shown part is part of the SOLID ref set
    Its attributes are:
    attribute 1 = part number = abc-1
    attribute 2 = description = widget
   Opp part is part of the OPP ref set
    Its attributes are:
    attribute 1 = part number = abc-2
    attribute 2 = description = opp abc-1
Now when the part is used in an assembly the correct part number/description will appear in the PL based on what ref set is used.
