    How get the attached parts of Back shells of connectors, Grommets & other accessories from NX to Vesys Harness Drawing

    sivabalan_vesys

      Hello,

      We designed our schematic by Vesys 2.0 and then we export the wire information by NX Wiring integration format (xml) and we did the routing at NX.

       

      My question is after we flatten back the NX routing file(plmxml) to vesys Harness drawing, We could not get the attached parts of Back shells of connectors, Grommets & other accessories. Please let me know is it possible to get those parts from NX to Vesys 2D harness drawing.

      Is any other way to add those parts into Vesys schematic itself so that, we can get those parts at NX to assign component ID. If we flatten back this NX file to Vesys harness drawing, we can get those accessories components at Veys harness drawing...

       

      Thanks,

      Sivabalan.

          The plmxml file will ONLY contain objects where the routepath is routed to a multiport, fixture port or a fitting port.  For objects like clips, grommets, backshells, you will need to have a single fixture port to which you route the routepath.  Connectors and splices should have a multiport.  NX does not have an explicit backshell type, and so it exports it out as a Fixing.

          In VeSys, by default, we treat a Fixing as a Clip.  But if you had defined the backshell in VComponents as group Other that is how the bridge will treat it and place it in the Other Component folder.

          Recall, VeSys does not support an explicit backshell type like Capital does, so having created it as group Other, add it as an additional part in the Housing tab of the connector part number.  This may be a better option because the styling of the connector and its additional components should be easier to define.
