Generate JT on NX assembly when saving into Teamcenter

Legend
Legend

Is there a way to generate a JT file on an NX assembly during save process to Teamcenter?

 

As it is today the user can see the JT od the parts but if they want to check the assmebly they need to go to Structure manager and show the datapanel and in the Graphic tab see the assy.

 

This setup we have for our Catia designs were a JT is stored on the assembly so the user easily can see the design directly in the Viewer tab.

JT's are generated from solids and therefore only on components. If you want an assembly level JT, called a monolithic JT, then you'll need to setup Dispatcher and a Translator to create the monolithic JT. You won't get this by default.

OK then I check on setting up NX also for the Dispatcher Service. Thx!

This question just came up here, and our solution, rather than go to structure manager, is to send the assembly item revision to the "Lifecycle Viewer".

Anyone knows what is the Lifecycle Viewer equivalent in Active Workspace?

The Vis Data Server (runs vispoolmanager kinda like serverpoolmanager for tcserver processes) which requires more and better hardware (NVIDIA GRID K1 / K2). However, it behaves a bit like a 2tier connection so the user must be physically close to the HW.

You might be able to get away with Teamcenter Visualization installed on the client instead but it is completely dependent on your use-case if this will work for you or not.

Hi Randy,

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I already have VisPool Manager running. I am able to view JT files of all components in Viewer. NO issues there.

I would like to know if we can have JT Assembly view similar to Lifecycle Viewer, where I can select/unselect certain components from BOM while viewing.

 

Thanks,
