Hello, I have installed NX12.0.2 and I can't see the new inspection tool.

My library version says: 4.3.2 instead of 4.4.4

 

Do I need to set some variable?.  Should I install the PostConfigurator additionally?

 

Regards

Frank

Hello @Frank,

 

if you use a postprocessor which was created in an earlier NX version it's needed to update the postprocessor to latest library version. So normally when you installed NX12.0.2 the libraries are updated in the mach/resource/post_configurator folder. That means if you create a new postprocessor this one should have version 4.4.4. Also we updated most of the OOTB sample machines to latest version.

 

Can you please check the version of the lib_sourcing.tcl?

If this is the case you can update your existing postprocessor with newest version. For this i've attached a small guide how to do.

 

Hope that will helps.

 

Edit: I recommend to do a backup of the existing postprocessor before executing the update.

 

Best regards

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

 

Thanks a lot for the video. However, it is unfortunate that my CAMExpress Advanced license does not allow me to see the debugging area. SiemensPLM's policy to not allow debugging for such a fundamentally important tool for developing your own post is questionable.

 

I've got back to work yesterday and have got the post working but without machine code. Am still working on it.

 

Thanks,

Best regards,
Naresh

Hi Naresh,

 

thanks for this honestly feedback about the licensing of features in Post Configurator. I don't want to start a discussion here about the license model and i will forward your feedback.

 

Not sure about the exact costs of the Full license but i think for the invest you get functionality which will help you. Maybe you can ask your local contact for a Testlicense and then decide it later how to go on there.

 

Best regards

Thomas

Thank you for your quick answer.

 

This solve my problem. In fact when I read you response then I realized that in the training course I learned how to update the post. I didn't be aware of the case when I read your first message.

 

Regards

Frank.
