In Siemens nx assemblies, when you create a new part by copy or pattern command, if you edit one part, the part remain will change together. What is solution? Can we create new part from the same part? With make unique command, you can create a new part file from one or more select component.
When you create a unique part file, you can edit the occurrences that reference the new part without affecting occurrences that still reference the original part.
Where do I find it?
+ From the menu (top border bar): Assemblies-> Components -> Make Unique.
+ From the graphics window: Right-click a component what you want to change-> Make Unique.
+ In the assembly navigator: Right-click a component what you want to change-> Make Unique.
How to create a new part from the same part in nx assemblies?
+ In the assembly file, select the component that you want to modify. Right-click component -> Make Unique.
+ In the Make Unique dialog box, click the Name Unique Parts
+ The Name Unique Parts dialog will appear, enter the new name and location of new file. For this example, the name of file is worm1. Siemens nx will show the location where the original component is kept. You can select the different location . I will select the same location.
