Hello

No preview is found from .DXF-file in Teamcenter:

  • How to connect a software to show the preview ?
  • Same thing on .PDFs

So NX 9.0 alone can't show the .DXF preview in Teamcenter ?

I use free DraftSight to modify .DXFs is it compatible with TC ?

  • Is there a Teamcenter forum here in Siemens community or is this an OK question to ask in NX-forum ?

There is a Teamcenter forum here also. There is one for both users and administrators. 

 

Teamcenter Community

 

You have a better chance to get the answer over there, but to me it is OK to ask the questions here also as someone may know the answer.

For DXF preview, there should be Teamcenter Preference defined. Normally preferences are defined and controlled at site level by TC admin, still you can add it at the user level.

 

In Teamcenter

Edit > Options, Click on 'Search' at the bottom of Options window

In Preference List, enter 'defaultViewerConfig.VIEWERCONFIG' in Search by keyword field

Select 'defaultViewerConfig.VIEWERCONFIG' from a search result and click on the icon 'Create a new preference instance' at upper left corner.

Enter value 'DXF.TCTwoDViewer=DXF' > Click on + icon to add value and Save, Close the window.

You will be able to see preview of DXF dataset in viewer tab.

Hi,

 

I am trying to follow your advice but the screen seems to be frozen, do you know why?

 

Please find attached picture below, the main headings are in Spanish but you can see that I can't modify the options, any idea why?

Hi @David7575,

 

Did you following @GaneshKadole's suggestion to "click on the icon 'Create a new preference instance' at upper left corner"?

Thanks for the heads up, I missed that bit.

I am actually trying to open a DWG file in Teamcenter but I don't have a clue where to start from.....
I am not a newbie but the next level down, possibly clueless with regards to Teamcenter. I have been looking at the post shown below but I guess that would be to visualise the document, eventhough I can't get it to work.

Any help is much appreciated.

Cheers

I am actually trying to open a DWG file in Teamcenter


Is that an NX "DWG" or an AutoCAD (*.dwg) file?

@David7575,

 

Did you try adding the value "ACADDWG.TCTwoDViewer=DWG" to defaultViewerConfig.VIEWERCONFIG preference?

Actually I can visualise only txt files, I can't even see a pdf file. Is there anything that I would need to do when uploading the documents that would let me visualise them always?
