Data Conversion in NX
The aim of the project was the development of an individual software solution that helps our customer export unsaved displays or revisions in various formats (DXF/DWG, IGES, Step,etc.) directly in NX.
The data conversion tool corrects the handicap of Siemens NX respectively Siemens NX Translators, which do not allow to export unsaved displays.
Suppressed or blanked components often cause problems to assembly drawings as well. Only the redirection via CGM is practicable, but this means loosing object informations (dimensions, line fonts, etc.) and the amount of curves can increase exponentially as the case may be.
Furthermore component-filter, once assigned, cannot be used as parameter for conversion.
The data conversion tool has two approaches:
- Interactively, fast and in an uncomplicated way a DXF/DWG, IGES or STEP is created from what you see.
- You can specify a component-filter, which defines the output.
The supplementary programming of the data conversion tool succeeds in solving both. The program works, of course, based on the Siemens NX Translators, which are well tried and properly maintained for years. However, the tool at first analyzes the displayed part and internally generates a substantially leaner copy to be processed. This technique actually meets WYSIWYG respectively the strategy of component – filters.
It’s not in the scope of the tool to substitute the translators, but to set up upon them and to offer an easy-to-use utility to meet frequent demands.
Features of the tool:
- Works interactively and in batch-mode
- Real WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get)
- Support of component-filters (also in batch-mode)
- Outputs IGES, STEP, DXF/DWG. Easy configuration!
- Processing via CGM Processing via UG2D
The success of the project
-> WYSIWYG of all translators
-> Handles batch-files
