Unable to Download Files That Have Been Stored in Agile With an MCAD Connector for a Different CAD System

(Doc ID 2421061.1)

Last updated on JULY 10, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Actual Behavior

MCAD connector for Creo is unable to download 3rd party CAD files.
Using the “Load to CAD” functionality from Agile for a Solid Edge assembly, the Agile Load Preview window of the XPLM Connector correctly shows the entire structure of the assembly, including all sub-components.
However after selecting “Load to CAD”, only the .asm assembly file is downloaded to the active workspace.
The sub-components (part files with extension .par or .psm) are excluded and are not downloaded to the active workspace.
When Creo opens the ASM file, only blank parts are assembled.

Expected Behavior

Regardless of source CAD system type within the structure (Solid Edge, Solid Works, NX, etc.), the XPLM Connector should download all CAD files within the structure to the active workspace since Creo has the functionality to import and automatically convert such files.
A relationship should be maintained between the downloaded file (which is converted to a Creo file when imported into Creo) and the Design Object such that the converted file can be checked back into Agile 9 as the next Version of the Design Object
 


Steps

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run “Load to CAD” from Agile for a Solid Edge assembly
2. See in Load Preview window of the XPLM Connector it correctly shows the entire structure of the assembly, including all sub-components
3. Check workspace. Only the .asm assembly file is downloaded to the active workspace. The sub-components (part files with extension .par or .psm) are excluded and are not downloaded to the active workspace.
4. Open ASM file from Creo, only blank parts are assembled.
