How does SW EPDM handle NX files?
We're looking at an upgrade to EDPM and use NX for some stuff so I want to know how that's going to effect us. Do we need a bridge like for Pro-E?
Thanks in advance...
Most likely that you need a integration software for that. But you may also consider to run Teamcenter with the SWIM (Solidworks) integration. From what I have seen and experienced, Teamcenter handles SW files well. There is a bit of configuration needed but I guess it is similar to any CAD/PDM integration.
Just wanted to point out that option to use Teamcenter since NX was mentioned.
Teamcenter is nice but we have a majorly of SW users so EDPM it is so sayeth the bosses.
But I'm going to looking that SWIM you're talking about and see what the deal is.
Thanks for the help
EPDM considers NX files to be just that, files. It will not read the references, build the BOM's or build Contains/Where Used information.
I am sure there are third party applications that will read the information from the files and create this information, but out of the box, EPDM does not do this.
That's what I've been seeing too. But there has to be a third party solution out there somewhere.
This is already an old thread but we have found a work around.
Using SW2019 with 3D Interconnect enabled (system options/import/enable 3D Interconnect) we import a NX assembly into a SW assembly. In this way you can read the references from a NX part. Hope this will help you and others
