Q. How to setup the CAM in Teamcenter


Hello

I am the admin of NX and TCE.
I want to setup NX CAM in TCE.

I have guided the mixed tce setting from someone.

But I want to minimize the local setup files.
and I don't want to buy the manufaturing module of TCE.

Atually, I have not yet setupped.
For desiding how to setup, I would like to get many tips and guide DOCs.

Thank you.
This forum is very very useful.

See the NX documentation section "Teamcenter integration for CAM" or similar.

There is no need to buy the part planner license to use CAM with Teamcenter.

There will still be some things maintained outside of Teamcenter, so you should use the NX_custom package on a server share to share common NX settings at your company.

Re: Q. How to setup the CAM in Teamcenter

We use the NXcustom setup, like Stefan mentioned, along with running things in a "mixed managed mode", per the "XYZ CO TC&CAM INTEGRATION - HOW TO SETUP A MIXED-MANAGED MODE V3.pdf" document, but note, we had to deviate a bit from the document, per suggestions from GTAC.  We have also deviated from the ootb NXcustom setup, to better fit our work enviornment, and users.

Where did you get that PDF?
I can't seem to find it on UGAnswer.

Thank you all.

I don't know about NX_custom package or setup.

Is it something like a network drive and .bat file for synching or updating the NXCAM setting file on user's PC from the network drive when user starts NXCAM?

Thanks you again.

NX Custom is a way to configure all your company/site specific changes in one place, in a relatively easy to maintain manner.  If put on a network drive, it is then sharable by all users at a site.  Work both native mode & in Teamcenter.

Created by Rob Cohon (many years ago), now maintained by Gerrit Koelewijn.

Note this not part of the NX release, it is something maintained "on the side" by a couple Siemens folks.

Re: Q. How to setup the CAM in Teamcenter

Jim Maynard, who was in the GTAC dept at the time, sent it to me.  I thought I found it in the solution center later, but now I can't find it anymore either.

 

PDF attached.
