No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

(OP)
I'm running NX12 on a Blade Server with Teamcenter. When I try and start the Design Simulation I get the following message:



Apparently I'm locked out of that option in Customer Defaults:



I do know where my profile is stored and can customize my interface but I don't know how to create and store the required template:



Thanks for any help.

I actually found a workaround if I run a local session of NX on the Blade server I have templates for all applications. I just have to step out the models.

RE: No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

If you are working in TC, you need to load the template parts into TC.
I'm assuming (somewhere) there is a .BAT to load them - hunt around in the NX install tree.
For instance, the NX CAM operation templates can be loaded using
%UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGII\templates\sample\tcin_cam_template_setup.bat

Just got off the phone with our Tech Support. They said TeamCenter doesn't support Simulation. Seems Strange......

@Barnon

Whomever told you TC doesn't support Simulation is wrong.
We have customers who use NX, Simcenter & Teamcenter.

Simple to prove this, if you look in the SIMULATION\templates folder where your NX is installed, you'll find a nxdm_ugs_cae_templates.pax file.
This palette file controls the simulation templates available for NX and is trying to call the parts from TC.
As you don't have them imported, you need to do the following for the templates that exist in that templates folder.

Thx Anthony.

You were right I found the templates.



I'm reluctant to try and run the BAT file. As mentioned before, this one Blade server of many set up exactly the same. I probably don't have permission to do so. Can you confirm I wouldn't be committing any security violation?

RE: No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

Are you the CAD and/or TC administrator? If not, I'd suggest talking to them about setting up the templates.

Nope... I'm just a user trying to use Design Simulation.

Thx

RE: No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

I use Catia for Teamcenter.
I created an explosion in an assembly, thinking that the explosion will be saved in Teamcenter as well.
It didn't………

RE: No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

FYI, once the pax files are installed/loaded into Teamcenter, you'll need to be sure to update the Teamcenter preference that tells NX where to look for the templates. For NX 12 that preference is TC_NX_FileNewPaxFiles_NX12. If you aren't running NX 12 replace 12 with the version you are on.

I agree with Cowski.
As a normal user you can not just upload templates into Teamcenter. You need DBA rights to do this properly.
Also you don't know how NX-Manager is configured and where it will get the templates from.
It can be setup in such a way, that the needed template will be imported from a server location upon creation of a part.
Also your PAX files need to be updated to get the correct templates. These could also be stored on server location. Doesn't necessarily have to be in Teamcenter.

Ask you coordinator to make the templates available for you.

RE: No Templates available for Design Simulation Application

Teamcenter supports CAE usage, but you must maybe define the datatypes in Teamcenter to support this.
for example a .fem file or a .sim file might not be recognized by default.

The JT files can also show FEM results in the TC vis viewer.

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
