How to create a .cojt with TuneData.xml from the API

Siemens Phenom Siemens Phenom

Starting from Tecnomatix V13.0.2, Tecnomatix .NET API provides new methods to create a TuneData.xml under a .cojt folder.

Here is an example that creates a new component with 3D, saves it to a valid .cojt and then imports it in the study.

 

            //1. Create a local component
            TxLocalComponentCreationData creationData = new TxLocalComponentCreationData("comp1", new TxTransformation());
            TxComponent comp1 = TxApplication.ActiveDocument.PhysicalRoot.CreateLocalComponent(creationData);

            //2. Add geometry
            TxBoxCreationData boxData = new TxBoxCreationData("box1", new TxTransformation(), new TxVector(500, 500, 500));
            comp1.CreateSolidBox(boxData);
            
            //3. Save it to .cojt
            string compFileName = "comp1.cojt";
            TxLocalStorage localStorage = comp1.StorageObject as TxLocalStorage;
            localStorage.SaveToLibrary(new TxLibraryData(TxApplication.SystemRootDirectory, compFileName));
            comp1.Delete();

            //4. Create prototype data file
            string path = TxApplication.SystemRootDirectoryNormalized + compFileName; 
            
            TxTunePmDocumentManager pmDocManager = new TxTunePmDocumentManager();
            TxTunePmDocumentPrototypeData data = pmDocManager.CreatePrototypeData("PmToolPrototype");
            pmDocManager.SavePrototypeDataToDocument(path, data);
              
            //5. Import the new component
            TxInsertComponentCreationData insertData = new TxInsertComponentCreationData("comp1", path);
            ITxComponent comp = TxApplication.ActiveDocument.PhysicalRoot.InsertComponent(insertData);
comp.SetModelingScope();
comp.EndModeling(path);

Hello,

what is the ressource for

TxTunePmDocumentManager and TxTunePmDocumentPrototypeData

I don't find any information about that on the .net help.

 

Regards

They are both from Tecnomatix.Engineering.dll.

The namespace of TxTunePmDocumentManager is Tecnomatix.Engineering.Utilities and the namespace of TxTunePmDocumentPrototypeData is Tecnomatix.Engineering.DataTypes.

These classes are avalable as of Tecnomatix V13.0.2

So I just need to update,

thank you.

Is it possible to dave a compound part using the method? We need to create compound parts or compound resources from individual JTs. Do you happen to have a sample code for that? Any caveats? 

Thanks

Do you mean to create an End Item? Can you elaborate?

We have a manual procedure for creation of equipment prototypes (for example dressed robots, complex fixtures, etc.).  

 

We need to automate the procedure. Parts to assembly the equipment prototypes are either .cojt or jt files. At this point it is mostly JT files.

Hi,

 

To create an equipment use that code:

//1. Create the equipment
TxPhysicalRoot root = TxApplication.ActiveDocument.PhysicalRoot;
TxLocalComponentCreationData epData = new TxLocalComponentCreationData("equipment1");
TxComponent eq = root.CreateEquipment(epData);

//2. Copy/Paste components under the equipment - components can be created as described in the example or if they are .cojt, you need to only insert them

//3. If needed create kinematics for the equipment using the ITxKinematicsModellable interface that is implemented by TxComponent

//4. End modeling the equipment
eq.EndModeling(eqPath);

We are still using version 12.1 and:

TxComponent eq = root.CreateEquipment(epData); -- no such method
eq.EndModeling(eqPath); -- no such method


Any suggestions?

Hi,

 

the minimum version is 12.1.1

 

Look in the .Net helpfile:

The following items are new in version 12.1.1:

Modeling

The ability to set a selected component as modeling scope was added to ITxComponent .
The ability to end modeling and store a modeled object was added to ITxComponent .
The ability to create equipment was added to TxPhysicalRoot and TxComponent .
