NX Version Compatibility Issues

Experimenter
Experimenter

Good Morning,

 

We are in the process of implementing NX into our design office and have begun with v12.

 

We have another part of the business which is already using NX but we understnad that to be v11, our first conflict.  We understand that we can open and work with parts they have created but they cann't do the same with ours....

 

With the introduction of 1847, can either v11 or v12 open parts created in this version and vice versa? Will there be future compability issues across releases or will this new continuous release approach remove this?

 

How will Teamcenter interact with the new version?

 

Thanks

Alistair

With NX, newer versions can open older version files.

The reverse is not (and never has been) supported.

 

With Teamcenter, you can try to run multiple versions, but you have to be **VERY** careful (and usually in the real world it is almost impossible to do this).  With TC, you really should plan on EVERYONE using the same version, and upgrading all at the same time.

Or perhaps I should say:

If the TC databases are common or multi-sited together, you really should plan on everyone being on the same NX (and TC) version.

 

If the TC databases are completely separated, then you can do whatever.

Hi @Wirtgen_Ltd 

 

Please also refer to the NX Release Notes (NX 1847, NX 12 and NX 11) and the Integrations Matrix to review Teamcenter and NX compatibilities.

Hi @BenBroad  and @Ken_A 

 

Thank you both for your help, does the forward compatibility issue exist with material libraries too?

 

Thanks

Hi @Wirtgen_Ltd 

 

NX material libraries are XML files that use the MatML schema.  Since there is not any physical part data associated with the material libraries an NX 11 MatML material library can be used in newer versions of NX.

You can now manage different versions of NX, and in fact different environments of NX, within Teamcenter. This is mainly intended for suppliers and contract engineering companies who work for multiple OEMs and clients. It would equally work in your case with different divisions/departments using different versions. The functionality not only ensure the correct version being opened but also prevents saving of a file in a different environment.
