p-notch table changing

melodyLmelodyL Posts: 5
we have standard p-notch tables since 1998 we use 5 different notches, We are having issues that our tables are being altered...more notch number added to our current p-notch table up to 71 notch types repeating the same ones over and over. we do export and export/import dxf and gerber zips in pattern maker storage areas.  I would like to know if we are doing something wrong.  I have attached our documents in how to make a gerber zip file and export a dxf file from pds.

    You may to get p-notch via gerbers zip. 
    Cos i always recommend import any data to temporary storages like import on C drive. And manually copy only you need to regular working area.

    I would also recommend restoring to a C-drive "test" storage area and review. Your AccuMark Utilities in File Options contains the path to your default parameters, including notches. I suggest that you choose a storage area with the default parameter tables and notches to use when creating new storage areas. This will ensure that each new storage area going forward has the correct parameters. If you are seeing differences in existing storage areas, be sure to copy the parameters you expect to each of these existing storage areas so that they all have the same information.

    thank you for your input, the issue is that when you import patterns from different software, like Boke, Zhizunbao, Shigao, NAC2000 and Gemini X8 it is adding and overwriting our standard P-Notch table. We solved the issue by making a separate folder to import into and then move the pattern pieces.
    thank you.

    @melodyL.
    You can try to change notch table in import settings while convert data...
    Just suggestions

    The ASTM and DXF Exports do not include P-Notch values, only location and notch identification. If the software vendors you mention export to ASTM or DXF Standard and include a P-Notch table, it is not following the conversion standards. However, if these CAD systems are creating native AccuMark zip files and the user includes a notch parameter table equivalent to AccuMark, you would need to de-select the parameter tables on import to avoid overwriting your values.

    what we did was, create a storage area for importing data and use DCU.  The reason we chose this option, is pattern makers didn't want to keep remembering to change there path in PDS.
