Viewing STP files in embedded viewer

Hi guys,

 

Is it possible to view STP files in the embedded viewer in Teamcenter?

Are you using TC-NX integration?

How are you adding the STP files to the item revision in Teamcenter, as a separate dataset?

Yes, Using TC-NX integration.
I can add STP directly using drag-drop without having UGMASTER or JT data.

I am certain about the DXF,DWG,UGMASTER,UGAPRT,PDF preview, but not about STP (or STEP).

 

When you import some dataset in TC, option 'Tool Used' shows the tool for that particular dataset.

UGMASTER/UGPART - UGII V10-BASE

Bitmap - PV

Word file - MSWord

PDF - PDF-Tool etc.

 

I am wondering the tool to be used (if it is available) to import it directly. In my case when I import it using 'Ctrl+D' > Select the STP file from OS location, it's showing tool used as 'CAE_Dummy' which seems to be incorrect.

 

If I drag and drop STP file to item revision, it does get added. When checked under named reference there is nothing to show, it's empty. Can you check the same? I am doubtful about the preview of the STP file format in TC.

 

EDIT: Preferences need to set for the dataset to view in the viewer

 defaultViewerConfig.VIEWERCONFIG
<dataset type>.<viewer type>=<list of named references>

For example, to show PDF, UGMASTER and UGPART datasets the following preferences can be used

PDF.TCTwoDViewer=PDF_Reference,PDF
UGMASTER.DirectModelViewer=UGPART
UGPART.TCTwoDViewer=UGPART

How is it possible to make STP file read by the TCViewer?

Re: Viewing STP files in embedded viewer

You have TC-NX integration. Import STP file in NX part file and save it in Teamcenter as UGMASTER dataset.

Re: Viewing STP files in embedded viewer

I already know that is possible.
I was wondering if STP files could be directly visible through the Viewer or not.

I think answer is NO.

 

@BenBroad: Can you give your opinion about this?

I believe it is possible with JT-STEP translator.

Re: Viewing STP files in embedded viewer

STEP (*.stp or *.step) files are not supported for viewing in the embedded viewer in Teamcenter . With the correct TcVis license the STEP file can be opened in standalone TcVis.
