A new problem i got in uni graphics files.
u know that in unigraphics nx all 3d model, sketches, drawing & assembly are saved in same format that is .prt format.
I got a lot of ug prt file in a folder & Now i need to identify that which file is the top main assembly file & which are its child part.
need any option to identify without opening each of that.
Hi Rupesh, I'll explain this with a simple example this will related if you have three files or twenty files.
I have a directory with the part files 'bolt.prt', 'nut.prt' and 'washer.prt' if I want to know which is the parent and which is the child open any part, I chose to open the nut.prt, the procedure is as follows:

This problem can be solved in a much easier way. just have a better naming system for your parts/assemblies/drawings. example: I have a chair, the full assembly could be called "Chair, Assembly" then each part can be called things like, "Chair, Left Arm, Part" or "Chair, Left Arm, Drawing" a descriptive name can make a ll the difference, and the computer will store them alphabetically which is nice for organization. you could also try numbered names. Example: the chair is Item number C3582, but each component part would be C3582-01, C3582-02. And even then you can add text so, C3582-01 (Left Arm), C3582-02 (Right Arm). Also the folders you store files in. One assembly, one folder.
some kind of company using only numerical system as parts naming because of heavy assembly & lots of veriety of parts.. there danny's idea will works.
but that option is availible only in nx latest version like nx8
@rupesh I was surprised that I'm getting a surprise, my collection of GC coffee cups is growing :) BTW I used NX6 not sure what version of UG the 'Where used' report feature was introduced.
have u got surprize gift from sara in return of answering this question danny.
Hi Tim, I agree it's good practice to have a good naming convention and file organisation for assemblies however if they're not your own work and you've been given or downloaded the files then the method in my tutorial is an easy way to find out which is the parent part in an assembly.
