Using EDA-Client (2.0) for Mentor Expedition with Teamcenter (11.2.1)

Hi there,

 

did anyone do this before?

I would like to share experiences with other users, but it seems to be pioneering...

It works in EDA 2.0.1 + Mentor Vx1.2 + Teamcenter 11.2.2 combination

Re: Using EDA-Client (2.0) for Mentor Expedition with Teamcenter (11.2.1)

Thanks, that is nice to know.

 

Did you set up your environment yourself, according to document PLM00087 2.0.1, or with the help of PLM?

I ask because we ran from issue to issue with document PLM00087 2.0...

 

And do you have experiences with VX2 also? Because we plan to update our flow from 7.9.5EE to VX2.

Hi Thomasle,

 

Sorry for late reply. It was holiday time in China. 

Yes, PLM00087 2.0 is the only document we got. 

Me too ran from issue to issue. 

We found several new issue today.   

IR 8524789, User has to manually select .edc file when saving schematic files in to TC using viewable option "From Schematic". 

IR 8523487, "decryptonly" license error pops up when creating viewable files from PCB with option "From PCB".

 

I have not tested with VX2, but from the matrix, I think it is currently not supported.

 

How is the project going in your side? you can email me at zhe.sun@siemens.com to share some experience

Hi Sun Zhe,

 

thanks for getting back to me. I will send you my PLM00087 2.0 with comments of all the issues we ran into.

 

Unfortunally I can't access your quoted IR's, but had the same issue with the decryptonly issue.

 

Exceptionally this is a Mentor issue, as they encrypted their pcb files somewhere between EE7.9.1 and EE7.9.5 and later..

So you need to contact Mentor for providing the correct license.

 

But imho paper is patient. I ask myself if the steps in PLM00087 2.0 have ever been tested, or not, as paper is patient. So they shall have run into the same and many other issues, which cost us many efforts.

 

Btw: You are right, VX2 is not supported yet.

 

 

BR, Thomas

Hi,

 

This is mayur thange,

Currently I am working on EDA-Altium integration.

When i tryed to SaveAs Item on EDA-client, it shows me PCA & PWB type, But I required only PWB type of item.

If you have any idea regarding above please shear,please find attached image file 

 

If you have any user media or some douments please shear it, it will help me.

 

Re: Using EDA-Client (2.0) for Mentor Expedition with Teamcenter (11.2.1)

Sorry for late reply.

I am currently working for another project. So not quite sure about the preference.

As far as I know, there is a Teamcenter preference to control this behavior. 

You can take a look into the preference "EDA_DefinedPWBWith"

Re: Using EDA-Client (2.0) for Mentor Expedition with Teamcenter (11.2.1)

Hello Mayur,

 

No we can not stop creating any one of them, what you can do is to set custom objects by preferences for creation of this PCA and PWB.

 

On PCA, you will have you altium project dataset saved. when you save from the altium

 

and PWB component you may used for the Fabrication data, Geber files, NC drills files and data sheets.

 

So instead of avoiding PWB creation, use it..!!!
