3D Tool Assembly - Loading Performance in Tool Path Verify 3D Issue

Genius
Genius

Hi,

 

at my company, we have rolled out NX CAM mainly with NX9. Just today we have switched to NX10. As we make progress with our customization base, we are creating more and more 3D tool assemblies in one of our prototyping sites.

Currently, we have about 1100 NX part files partially in sub folders of the folder referenced by UGII_CAM_LIBRARY_TOOL_GRAPHICS_PATH . That folder is locaed on a network share. There is no Teamcenter involved. Our Assembly Load Options are set to As Saved. Verify Tool Path 3D is customized to Tool Display = Assembly.

 

When the user calls Verify Tool Path 3D, it takes quite some time to load the 3D tools. It seems NX starts to search in all sub folders in quite some random order. The NX CAM user experience is impacted quite a lot by this, because it just takes too much time.

 

When we simplify each 3D Tool Assemblies to a single part performance improves. But this requires some extra changes in the parts. It is of no help maintaining the 3D tool assemblies.

 

What are your experiences with a larger amount of 3D tool assemblies that you would like to share?

 

Best wishes,
Joachim

I get this issue also when just displaying tools or modifying parameters. Up to 5 seconds per change. It really slows things to a crawl.

Can you check if the problem still exists in "NX 11.0.1 MP7" or "NX 11.0.2 MP4"?

You may also check the read-me HTML file of each release first.

Hi Stefan,

we have a solution for NX11.0.1 but I am not sure whether I am allowed to communicate it or when it gets communicated officially.

I was wondering if we were the only ones with such an issue.
Best wishes,
Joachim

I haven't found something indicating a fix in the release notes of NX 11.0.1 MP7, NX11.0.2 and NX 11.0.2 MP4.

@JSchraitle, if you have a custom fix, then it will be hard to offer it to others anyways, since it is depending on the exact MR/MP used.

I have never been able to get this site to take videos, so I put a link. If you watch real time notice the delays between the graphic display, and when I actually clicked. Also edting fields causes up to a few seconds delay. Over the course of the day this really slows things down. This happens on different computers, and they are all fairly new (within a year old). One is a Dell precision 7710. I remember years ago an old underpowered laptop with XP would show these previews instantly without an issue. Any settings to speed thins up?
