In our projects sometimes we must do the pipes / hoses that connects different assemblies. Specially for water system and sometimes also for air system. In order to do that, we have a big assembly where we have inserted other assemblies, and in the assembly environment , through the tool XPRESS Route we are creating the "path" of the hose.
At the end, we select the hose, go to the "transfer option" , and move the hoses in the desired assembly.
Now, it seems that doesn't work, at least when using the Solid Edge connected with the Teamcenter.
I even try to "broke" the links, and I am not able to move the hoses to the desired assembly. Did anybody had this problem? And is there a solution?
If you are using a managed environment (Teamcenter) and you are creating the hoses at the top level assy I would think you would need to check-out the top level assy to make those changes. What I recommend is to have a system level assembly that is a component in the top assembly. That allows you to control your system design without effecting the master assembly structure. Master Assy Hyd System Water System Air System ect.
TARGET ASSEMBLY (will become water system assembly)
Top assembly and TARGET ASSEMBLY are Check-Out to me. Also the hose1.par and the hose2.par.
Than I select the hoses, go to transfer command, and I select the TARGET ASSEMBLY. At that point nothing happens. Solid Edge seems to ... thinking...thinking...thinking.... and after once I waited for 3 hours.... well.... I have my doubts that it is actually doing something. Also if I check the date (check-out date / Date Last Modified ecc) in Teamcenter all I see and it is correct it is the Check Out date & time of all the codes / parts / assembly. Nothing else change.
