Re: Opening DWG files on Teamcenter

Ben, 

 

these values did in fact work, I can now see a 2D drawing image in the viewer.  But, it looks as tho its a stretched out version of the thumbnail image shown in the summary tab.  Its very pixelated.  Too much in fact to read.  Do you think it is possible to try something on the dispacther end? Perhaps tell it to save a larger image when saving?

 

Thanks,

Jake

The qaf files are intended for thumbnail images (preview in NX dialogs and preview in Tc viewer). NX has the export option "Drawings to Teamcenter", which creates CGM datasets of the sheets in the part in the item revision. Alternatively you can use export_ugdwgimages.exe, via dispatcher, to generate CGMs or PDFs of the drawings in the part.

There aren't and settings to change the resolution of the qaf files. NX generates these.

Also you can upload DWG under Image dataset.
All the best, Alexey.

Jake,

If you want to see NX drawings in the viewer, add the following:
UGPART.TCTwoDViewer=UGPART

You need to have the NX Save Option "Save Drawing CGM Data" enabled. This will show the NX drawings in the Viewer.

To view the model geometry in the viewer add the following:
UGMASTER.DirectModelViewer=UGPART

I jsut added UGMASTER.DirectModelViewer=UGPART and now I get a "failed to open document" when I select the ugmaster.  The drawing, and the JT work fine.

Interesting. Do you have any other values that refer to the UGPART or UGMASTER for the dataset type or named references?
The syntax for this preference is <dataset type>.<viewer type>=<list of named references>

Yes, the same thing happened to me. I am able to view the 2D drawings in the viewer now but I am receiving the same error with ugmaster. I have no other syntax relating to this preference.

Take a look in client_specific.properties. What is your PortalViewer_License_Level set to?
