Do you have teamcenter. You need to look into the Content Migration Manager. CMM. Good luck with the Migration. I think it can be ran with or without teamcenter. We always ran it within our teamcenter.
The CMM is a tool provided from Siemens to Migrate your I-Deas data from I-Deas to NX.
Are you still using the old I-Deas TDM? Team Data Management.
To get the CMM tool you need to contact your Reseller. Siemens provided us with training on how to use this tool. Do a search on this forum for CMM and it should have a lot of information for you.
I can't find Team Data Management installed either...
Is Team Data Management and Team Center two different softwares?
And what is their full purpose?
I'm searching through for CMM and Content Migration Manager but can't find instructions on how to locate or use these tools.
The TDM is the old I-Deas Library, I-Deas used this to manage it parts, assemblies and drawings.
What kind of Old I-Deas files do you have? Are these model files?
Hope this helps
I'm facinated that this is still a topic nowadays. I was the I-DEAS to NX special interest group leader years ago when this was still a hot topic. That group is no more. We and many other customers migrated years ago and thus interest has wained.
Use this search to give you a list of the many I-DEAS to NX presentations on this topic (including mine) over the years:
Looking through our Drives we have .mf1 files.
Yes, Model files.
Going through the link provided, they provided another link to PLMworld. I'll be setting up an account there to gain access.
Unfortunately we have had a not so easy transition to our NX11.
I am now pushing towards migrating everything from I-DEAS over to NX11.
How painful and during can this process be?
Can the migration import successfully the history within model files over to NX11?
I'm sure this is an extremely outdated subject but I have so many questions on this now that I see many have gone through this process.
You'll get a VERY good feel of how painful it can be if you read through those old presentations in that search link. I have to assume many of the migration/transition bugs that plagued us have been fixed by now (ten years later), but the planning, data cleanup, and migration process can be complex and take a long time to complete.
