This issue was discovered in a customer environment that has 3DEXPERIENCE 2016X with FP1711. We had a SOLIDWORKS Connector client that had major performance issues. Within the connector explorer interface, if we click on Actions or right-click on a non-cached object, it was taking 45+ seconds for the menu to display. After the object was cached by selecting “Get Latest Iteration”, there was no problem. Solution : WINRAR was the root cause of the issue. Looks like it was trying to cache or read the objects before 3DEXP software. Uninstalling WINRAR solved the issue and the performance was back to normal.
How to get 3DNotification working with MS-SQL First step is to add a new system environment variable in Windows Install GA. Do not Click Install in the final confirmation screen Modify install.properties and save the file Click Install Before installing the Fix Pack, add ODBC connection to 3DNotification database
After installing the Platform applications, we need to select the ENOVIA installer path for all web applications. With so many web applications to install, this can become a boring and time consuming task to perform especially when this operation needs to be done twice. Once for the GA and again for the fix pack install. There is an easier option to solve this issue by entering the path for the installer in the Windows environment variable. Extract the Installer from Platform install folder. Open Windows system environment variables Click New under System variables Create variable name “DSY_ENOVIA_Installer” and enter the path in the variable value Click OK to close the […]
ENOVIA 2017X Platform – What’s New Apart from the standard platform components that were part of 2016x (3DSPACE, FED SEARCH, FTS, 3DPASSPORT, 3DDASHBOARD etc.), two new components have been introduced in 2017x. 3DComment Provides the ability for 3DEXPERIENCE platform members to interact with one another by liking content and adding comments to any item in the system. This is a mandatory module that needs to be installed. 3DNotification Helps 3DEXPERIENCE platform members get timely updates about activities going on. It basically controls the notification message services. This is a optional module. Azeem Saied InFlow Technology
On SOLIDWORKS V6 clients, the JAVA options are read from the IEF client config.xml file. You could experience performance issues and errors during check-in or major resource intensive operations like undo-check-out of a large assembly if these parameters are not set. Go to C:\Program Files\Dassault Systemes\IEFClientV6R2014X\IEFClientWorkspaceServices\ and open config.xml using notepad. Overwrite the <javaoptions> string with the following and add <slwjavaoptions>.. string below it. <javaoptions>-Xmx8192m -Xms4096m</javaoptions> <slwjavaoptions>-Xss512k -Xmx8192m -Xms4096m -XX:SurvivorRatio=2 -XX:NewSize=2048m -XX:MaxNewSize=4096m -XX:MaxPermSize=2048m -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -XX:+UseCompressedOops</slwjavaoptions> Note: Xmx is the maximum heap and Xms is the initial heap startup parameter. In the example above, Java will use 8GB max and 4GB initial. These values could vary depending on the RAM you have. […]
How to run EBOM Sync automatically on check-in of SOLIDWORKS objects? Running EBOM sync on every SOLIDWORKS object that is checked-in to ENOVIA can be a time consuming task. With the following steps, EBOM sync will be executed automatically as soon as the SOLIDWORKS object is checked-in. 1. On the ENOVIA server, start Matrix. 2. Login as creator. 3. Search: Type – "SWNewArch_R216.HF2" [Note: make sure the correct GCO is selected] 4. Right click – Properties – Attributes 5. Set the value of "IEF-EBOMSynchOnDesignCreation" to "TRUE"
For users of SOLIDWORKS Connector, a bug in the ENOVIA system (R2014X FP1530) prevents users from accessing ENOVIA if the default columns in explorer are modified. This option is normally accessed by right-clicking the columns section as seen in example screenshot below. The workaround is to delete the user LCO object. This bug has been fixed in FP1538.
To find the location of the store in ENOVIA, start MQL and enter the following: MQL<1> set context user creator; MQL<2>verb on; MQL<3>list store STORE * select path;
