changing a parts orientation and exporting as a new part (Teamcenter Visualization)

Hi, 

 

Below question was originally posted on the JT2go forum, however i was recommended to post on here as what i want to achieve may be possible on visualisation.

 

Hello,

 

I am currently working on a project which requires viewable 3d models that can be opened by customers to show off our products, to do this I had  my colleague with NX send me several monolithic .jt files which I have exported to html, ideal for what I need.

 

however the parts being sent to me are drawn with the Z axis vertically up yet when opened in jt2go the parts open with the Y axis vertical as default, this means that when someone opens the .html file the part is 90 degrees out and requires them to manipulate the model into the correct view (which the person viewing the models may not know). I would like the parts to open in the correct view.

 

Is there a way to open the parts in JT2go (or teamcenter visualization pro which I have a copy of), change the part view to the correct plane/axis (Z up), and then save/export this as a new part as either .jt or straight to .html.

 

I understand that I could ask my colleague to change them in NX, however they are busy and could do without the extra hassle of re-orienting the models.

 

Attached are 2 pictures; the first is showing the orientation of the part when i first open it in JT2go and the second is the how I want the part to be oriented.

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @Charles94,

 

  • Open the original JT in Teamcenter Vis and highlight the assembly structure
  • Select "Actions > Part Transformation" to Translate/Rotate the part as desired
  • Keep the structure selected, right click in the white space under your assembly structure and choose "Create Alt Hierarchy > From Selected"
  • Export the Alternate Hierarchy as a new monolithic JT using "File > Export".  Select [AH] from the Hierarchy list, select Options to make sure you're exporting a Monolithic structure, ensure your export path and File Format are correct and choose OK

Note that in TcVis 11.2.3 (and newer) you don't have to create the Alternate Hierarchy (Implemented ER 5765856).

Thanks Ben,

I've managed to do it using your instructions, however i used "Actions > Part Transformation>Add Manipulation" to rotate the model while keeping the software Y up if that makes sense.

Thanks again for your help

I am trying to export some selected layouts of a Model of JT appearance (Monolythic JT), Its exports Successfully but after export, automatically it loads all the other unwanted JT layout, even which are not selected. I always have to close the entire application for this as I have to export the few layouts frequently.
