Working with GM TCe print internally

Working with GM TCe print internally

Working with GM TCe print internally

When we release a print in GM TCe we have to over-write our internal print so we have the most recently updated print. But when I export it internally I cannot make any changes to anything that uses a macro (e.g. rev block, names, date). I can't use the macro if it's not GM TCe NX. Is there a way to make those changes?

RE: Working with GM TCe print internally

GM Launch has options to start Teamcenter and also NX (native), unless you (or whomever did the installation/configuration) removed those options.

RE: Working with GM TCe print internally

I don't see a "Native" option anywhere when I start TCe. I do know that when I option NX through TCe, I cannot open a file within our internal drive. Does that mean anything?

RE: Working with GM TCe print internally

Please tell us how do you start GM Teamcenter.

Do you use GM Launch, or use something different?

RE: Working with GM TCe print internally

We use GMLaunch 6.1. Sorry for the delay on this. Hope you get this response.

RE: Working with GM TCe print internally

What options do you have in GMLaunch?
There should be a section called "CAD"
From there you can start NX "Native" without connecting to GM Teamcenter.

RE: Working with GM TCe print internally

It does have an option called CAD but it doesn't do anything. There's also a tab that says CAD. But I didn't see any options for "Native" anywhere. Probably a licensing thing.
