Hi all!

I want to display Adobe Illistrator datasets in Viewer panel on TC11.5 and i have add the following value to the defaultViewerConfig.VIEWERCONFIG:

AdobeIllustrator.TCTwoDViewer=AI_Reference

However,it does not work.

Is it possible to do that?

 Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Thank you for the quick reply!

From the document,it applies to TC8.3 ,however,I am using TC11.5.

So i will test it.

@ydxxzjican don't rush to use the solution for version 8.3. At the end there is the Reference section, which describes where to find the solution for Teamcenter version 9.x and later in the documentation.

Can you post an example *.ai file? I will try to configure my Teamcenter to display it.

I use Tc11.4.10  currently (Tc10 previously), and it works for me after configuring it a while back.  Do not recall every setting, but I searched my Tc preferences for AdobeIllustrator and found it in:

VMU_Datasets = (includes AdobeIllustrator)

VMU_FileSearchOrder = (includes AdobeIllustrator)

defaultViewerConfig.VIEWERCONFIG = (includes AdobeIllustrator.TCTwoDViewer=AI_Reference)

 

Also in BMIDE for Tools for View for the AdobeIllustrator dataset, I added VMU as one of the Tools.BMIDE-AdobeIllustrator.png

Sorry for the late reply. The VMU tool makes me confused.Should i install embedded Visualization with the Mockup
functionality firstly?And does it need additional license?
Thanks a lot!

To view the datasets in the Rich Client, every client that need to view .ai viles will need to have either Adobe Illustrator or TcVis (integrated or embedded) installed.

This is why you need to add VMU to the "Tools to View" for non Adobe Illustrator users to view them in Vis.

There shouldn't need to be any extra licenses if you already have Vis or even if you don't since basic viewer functionality is included with the RAC.

We have a separate but integrated TcVis install on every client that includes Base licensing, so I'm not certain if the embedded basic RAC viewer supports .ai files or not, but I think it should.
