SmarTeam Services Error Message on Client Machines

SmarTeam Server has been installed and configured. Services are running. Client has been installed. Config.dll is pointing to the correct server. License server is working.  All configuration settings (scripts, icons etc.) have been set but when you start SmarTeam Editor, a message pops up "Please check if SmarTeam Services are started". The reason for this error is that the SmarTeam.Std.Config.dll has been over written with the previous versions dll file. This situation happens mostly during an upgrade process. For example, the systems are upgraded from version V5R20 to V5-R62013 and because the number of clients to be upgraded are huge, IT creates a script to install SmarTeam automatically. This script […]

Smarteam class icon does not refresh on “save as” to new class

With V5R21 SP3 and Solidworks 2012 SP2 – Smarteam icon does not refresh in DMT if part class is saved into a different class. 1. In Solidworks, create and save a new part. 2. Save this part into Smarteam as Solidworks part class. 3. "Save as" into Smarteam as Solidworks standard part class.4. The icon still points to the Solidworks part class.5. Right-click in the DMT and Refresh.6. The icon changes to Solidworks standard part class.

Dimension/Formulae mapping

Dimension values and other formulae from Solidworks can be mapped to Smarteam. The setup is similar to attributes set through custom properties. For eg. If you want values of  "length" and "width" & "Thickness" mapped to Smarteam profile card, create the three attributes in the Smarteam data model (in the appropriate class/profile card)  NOTE : 1. Define mapping direction from SolidWorks to SmarTeam only. Setting both directions may lead to overriding formula with current value (Integration tools setup in Smarteam) 2. In Smarteam, the dimension/formula mapping option is diabled in default mode. To turn it on, go to System configuration editor and change the value of "SolidWorks.mapEvaluatedValue" to TRUE
