nx8.5 within teamcenter 8.3 run and many tab is not show?

Dear Friends


In native NX8.5 when we open the software, in the new dialog box we see many tabs like Modeling, Drawing, Simulation, Manufacturing, Inspection, Mechatronics Concept Designer and Ship Structure. But when we want to create the new part in NX8.5 from within Teamcenter8.3 we will only see the Modeling, Manufacturing and simulation tabs. For example it is not possible to create drawings using the master model workflow. How can we fix it?I need to have Drawing Tab.

 

thanks

Search the NX documentation for UGII_TEMPLATE_DIR, which is the folder containing the PAX files, that are used to specify the tabs in the file new dialog.

 

Spend some time reading the information provided in the NX help file about the file new template pax files.

In addition read through the NX integration for Teamcenter section of the NX help file.

Dig into your Syslog file.
Search for "pax" and you will be told why and which entries of your configuration were discarded.

The documentation can be found in the NX help file under the topic Fundamentals => Working with files (or Managing files) => Part file templates.

While both native and managed NX look at the same directory, they don't load the same templates (pax). Native NX loads ugs_*.pax while managed NX loads nxdm_*.pax. The OOTB directory where templates are stored is %UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGII\templates. There is a "sample" subdirectory that contains "tcin_template_setup.bat" which basically looks for files beginning with nxdm in "templates" and tries to copy them to "sample". Make sure to delete existing "sample\nxdm*.pax" before running the script. Read the script lines 349 - 362 for an explanation.

A few Points to note

 

PAX  Files

 

In Teamcenter Env, these can be stored inside the Teamcenter Database.

For NX8.5, 

TC_NX_FileNewPAXFiles_NX85 is the Teamcenter Preference, which contains the ItemRevision which contains the text dataset, which has the PAX file contents.

 

In General, the Preference is TC_NX_FileNewPAXFiles_NX?  ( ? is the NX Version ).

This can be set as a Teamcenter Group Pref also.

The Pax file, contain, details of the Template, etc.

 

I am attaching 2 GTAC articles, which will help you.

 

Hopw this helps.
