Teamcenter uses a different NX9 ?


Hello (My company started using Teamcenter)

Why Teamcenter uses a different NX9 that does not use my own Customer Defaults that I inserted earlier into my original NX9 that was there before Teamcenter arrived ?


  • How do I change the Customer Defaults in the Teamcenter's NX9 ?
  • Teamcenter-> Start/Open in NX-> launches a different NX9 that does not have my Customer Defaults ?

That is dependant on how your company has things setup.  We store our customer defaults on a server, so I can move any native settings to the teamcenter area, and visa-versa.  I'd talk to you Tc/NX admin, and see what they can do to help you.


I'd also encourage you to save a "role" once you have things how you like, then you can quickly bring things back, if something again changes (new computer, etc)

You can export the customer defaults settings from native NX and import to TC-NX using Defaults Level as 'User'

Note that TC starts NX via a .BAT somewhere in the *TC* install folder, e.g. in TC2007, it is ...\rac\start_nxmanager.bat

In TC11, it is ...\portal\start_nxmanager.bat


What I would suggest is that you open an "native" NX session, list the log file (File -> Help -> Log file) then save the "info" window to a text file.

Then open an NX session from TC, and save the log file to a different text file.

Compare the 2 text files to make sure that the ENV variables are the same (except for differences required by TC).


Especially UGII_SITE_DIR, UGII_GROUP_DIR, and UGII_USER_DIR (but others may apply).

If you start native NX using a .BAT that sets a bunch of ENV variables to values different that the "out of the box" install, you will have to replicate setting those ENVs in start_nxmanager.bat


Hope this helps...Ken
