Assigning NX Drawing Templates to Teamcenter Group




We are using TC NX integration and we would like to know if it would be possible to assign NX Templates(Drawing /Model/Assembly) to specific Teamcenter group.


For Example

I have 2 groups under TC organization

  1. Group 1
  2. Group 2

And let say I have 2 Drawing templates.

  1. Drawing Template 1
  2. Drawing Template 2

My clarification here is , if a user from Group 1 launces NX he should only see Drawing Template 1 and if a user from Group 2 launces NX , he should see only Drawing Template 2.

Is this achievable?


Your suggestions would be of great help to me. Thanks in advance

You can do this by NX group but not by Teamcenter Group.  You can configure NX Customer Defaults to use Group Level defaults for each of your groups.  The downside is that there is no coordination between Tc and NX.  It’s a manual process.

You can also set this up with the pax files stored in TC. If you make a group preference TC_NX_FileNewPAXFiles_NX9 pointing to the Items with the pax files.

See the NX docs Home->Teamcenter Integration for NX->System Setup/Administration-> Installing/creating/modifying templates -> Storing PAX files in Teamcenter
