Currently the Export function in the main UGS NX 6 GUI is broken. To export files you can use the following workaround:

First set these variables (assumes you're using bash):

 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/nx/ugs060/ugii
 export UGS_LICENSE_SERVER=28000@licsrvr4.win.rpi.edu
 export UGII_ROOT_DIR=/usr/local/nx/ugs060/bin
 export UGII_JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java
 export UGII_BASE_DIR=/usr/local/nx/ugs060

Then change directory to the directory under the main nx directory which names the file format you want to convert to. For example, if you wanted to convert an NX file to an IGES file you would:

 cd /usr/local/nx/ugs060/iges

Then execute the the script which is named the same thing as the directory you changed to (and the same as the file format you want). For iges it's simply:


You should get a window that looks like this: Image:Screenshot-NX_Data_Exchange.png

Choose "Export" and click Next

You should get a window which looks something like this: Image:Screenshot-IGES_Export_-_NX_Data_Exchange.png

Click the yellow folder icon on the right half the of the center pane of the window (NOT the one on the upper toolbar) and choose the file you want to convert.

Optionally choose settings from the Edit menu and set them as desired.

Then click one of the yellow lighting bolt icons to do the conversion and be patient. You should see a blue status bar show up to the right of the tool bar.

When the status bar disappears your should have a converted file (by the same name as your original with a different extension by default).
