NX X Launching NX Viewer and NX Layout from Teamcenter

NX for Design



How can you start NX Viewer and NX Layout from Teamcenter?


While the documentation states that options (-opts) can be passed to the ugs_router command, by editing the start_nxmanager.bat file, it is not possible to pass '-view' or '-layout' options to the ugs_router command.

Therefore, to start NX Viewer and NX Layout from Teamcenter, edit the start_nxmanager.bat file in a text editor and edit the lines following the comment: "Start Unigraphics through the launcher program".

For NX Viewer set the following:

set nx_pkg=%* 
call set nx_pkg=%%nx_pkg: -nx = -view %% 
start "Teamcenter Integration for NX" /B %UGII_ROOT_DIR%\ugs_router -ugm -enable_cancel -version=%VERSION% %nx_pkg%

For NX Layout, replace "-view" with "-layout".
