Specification instead of Manifestation

Creator

Hello,

 

I have made an new Item in TeamCenter (8.1) and imported an 3D model (UGMASTER) from my operating system. After this I imported an CAM part (UGPART) which was also located on my operating system. Now, when I want to open my CAM part, which should be a manifestation, has become an specification. Anyone ideas how this is possible?

Most likely something was done wrong during import.

Try to create a new dataset, make sure it is "manifestation" data set type, then inport the CAM part.  You will (probably) have to re-pick component(s).

How can I be sure, I'm adding a manifestation dataset type?

In this dialog box, I chose to use the "UG Part", it's OK, right?

Check the default relationship type for each dataset. If you are not sure, get in touch with your Teamcenter administrator.

I'm not sure either (I'm an NX guy, not a TC guy).

 

But... I would STRONGLY suggest you consider this:

Instead of storing your NC program parts as manifestation datasets inside the "engineering" part item, store them as separate items .

Item type = MENCMachining

 

This way they can be released/revised independantly of releasing/revising the engineering part (has your shop EVER wanted to replace one tool with another, or change how the part was cut? - if so, having a separate item is preferable, as you can release the existing program, and "Save as" to the next revision, without having to "revise" the engineering part)

Well that's exactly what I'm trying to do!

But I had to import some parts from native to TC. Then I got the problem with specificiation in stead of manifestation.

But MENCMachining, I've changed a lot of things,configuration files, pax-files, CAM Component Type=Target etc. but it isn't working properly yet.

Can you tell me some more about it? How should my MENC Item structure look like?

 

Thanks!
