Creating new file extension types for Teamcenter(*.NC and *.H extensions)

Hi guys,

 

My customer has FANUC and Heidenhein controllers on their machines.

The output we need is *.NC and *.H. Teamcenter does not import them.

How can I make Teamcenter to be able to recognize these?

If you post process inside of a managed NX session, the NC code files are saved to the export folder of the open MENCMachining part.

When you save the part, NX asks you to import the NC code files automatically.

There is only one dataset type for NC code files of any kind.

Hi Stefan,

I've done a simple example here.

When saving file,

I'm asking about this, this output is not being saved. Only if I change the extension to "*.ptp". Then I can save it.

Have you searched for PTP in BMIDE, so you can add the extension to the dataset specification?

Hi Stefan,

 

Most of them seem to be added already?

I think I shouldn't get an error.

This customer is TC Rapid Start, this might be foundation template but I think foundation should work here.

 

How can I get that error in this case?

In this case I would check with GTAC, they might be able to tell you which syslog will contain the information to resolve the issue.

I logged an IR Stefan, so thanks..

Waiting for a solution.

Will keep updating here if I get an answer.

It is the same in my environment and also the customer's so there may be others as well.
