I loose 3 tabs after finishing 'Machine Simulation'
- my custom tab,
- Assemblies tab,
- 3Dconnexion tab

 

Anybody has experience with that?

Hi,

 

I can duplicate it. Probably you can report this problem.

Found these tabs will appear if restart NX, if don't want to close you can enable these tab as below picture shown.

Thanks,

 

I've filed it at QTAC, that is wat you mean with reporting right?

Thanks for the workaround too.

Hi Michiel_2,

I tried to reconstruct it here, but I failed: I also have 3 custom tabs in my CAM Ribbon, while I am in the Simulation Task Environment, they disappear (as some others as well), but as soon as I finish the Simulation Task environment, they are shown again.

So just to be sure, if I understand you correctly: Even after closing the Simulation Task Environment, your custom tab ar still invisible?

Best regards.

Hi Cluas,

 

Please see below gif picture, I can reproduce in NX 12.0.2.9 MP1.

Machine simulation is a separate task environment like the sketcher starting with NX 12.0.2, so you have to update your roles or what ever is used to add the tabs you also need within this separate "application".

Hi Stefan, 

 

Thanks for the idea.
I tried to fix this using role with all applications enabled.
But still I experience a regression in the behavior of NX as of the calling of the machine simulation.

In the 12.0.2 'what's new' there is also no mention of changes required to enable the use of machine simulation vs 12.0.1.

 

I also did not get an answer from QTAC yet on how to fix this.

The question is if these tabs are really necessary inside of the simulation task environment.

Compare the modeling application to the sketch task environment, where also many modeling tabs are not available in the separate sketch task environment.

There is a big difference between the sketch task environment and direct sketch, where direct sketch is run inside of the modeling application.

The following shows the available tabs within the simulation task environment:MachineSimulationTaskEnvironment.pngMachine Simulation Task Environment

So it seems that there are not many tabs available at all.

Hi Stefan,

 

I am not talking about the availability during the simulation.
It is afterwards, when I 'Finish' the simulation and want to continue fixing or adding paths.

 

Than my tabs stay gone untill reboot of NX, 
Only the Assembly tab I can call back with the previously mentioned work-around.

But my custom tab stays gone untill I reboot,
which is annoying since I put in there macro's and functions I often use for path generation and preparation.
