Hi guys,

When I enter Manıfacturing in an existing Item wirh CTRL+ALT+M, I get mu machine tools and postprocessors without any problems, and use mill_contour.prt.(I am using all from my computer and machine tools model graphics from TC database)
When I start with File-New and select Manufacturing templates, CAM setup changes and When I try to retrieve my machines, and cam setups, totally different windows come and no machines anre there, thus no post processors.
I tried to modify the Nxdm_manufacturing_template.pax file to point to my computer for a specific template, it went to the same template from TC again.
How can I omit TC templates and work from my computer's post/template/machines even when I atart feom Gile-New_manufacturing templates?

File new templates must reside in Teamcenter.

 

Generally it is more cumbersome to use the native CAM configuration within Teamcenter, then maintaining a copy of the native configuration in Teamcenter.

 

Anything related to part files, like Machines, must be set up in Teamcenter too.

Is there a nice documentation about it? Step by step?

 

I did this.

Created an ITEM called CAM.

Changed it's and it's revisions Icon to a picture resembling CAM.

Then user will start with it, and import a part file to create a toolpath.

Then enter manufacturing with selecting the template within cam_general, like mill_contour.prt.

Then the setup in my computer came.

I added the machine tool model to the database with the same name.

Then pointed to the top assembly in Teamcenter database in the machine_database.dat.

Now everything works.

The NX documentation covers most of it under Teamcenter Integration for CAM.

Look for a document titled "XYZ:  Teamcenter/NX-CAM Integration" (attached), I got it from GTAC, and it helped a lot in setting up our CAM stuff.

Agreed, this is a great document. One comment however. The introduction states A-K where K is "Adding root_activity to MEOP_DefaultChildProperties" - there is no section K.

 

Currently, MEOP_DefaultChildProperties has the following

IMAN_master_form

bom_view_tags

revision_list

IMAN_manifestation

IMAN_reference

 

Is the intention here to go to Customer Defults > TC Integration for NX > Teamcenter Navigator tab and check on the following?
