NX Reuse Library Integration with Windchill
The NX Reuse Library can be configured with Windchill using the Windchill virtual file system in the same way it can be configured as a read-only area on the local file system with native NX. The Windchill virtual file system provides the same experience to NX users who use the NX Reuse Library across the enterprise, while allowing the information to be managed in Windchill.

Benefits and Description
The NX Reuse Library can be configured with Windchill using the Windchill virtual file system in the same way it can be configured as a read-only area on the local file system with native NX.
- Users can configure multiple PDMLink libraries to directly access NX part family information, UDFs, and templates from NX.
- Design engineers can create and add instances to their assemblies in NX within the NX environment.
- Users can refer to read-only part family generics when creating part family instances.
- The NX Workgroup Manager supports KRX, BMP, and CGM file extensions through the Import to Workspace feature, which supports Reuse Library features.
