Java Memory Usage for SOLIDWORKS Connector

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. […]

InFlow participates in the ENOVIA SOLIDWORKS event in Chicago

Automatic EBOM Sync Functionality

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"

Adding Additional Columns in Windows Explorer

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.

How to Install SolidWorks Client Connector for Enovia 3DEXPERIENCE 2014X

Two components are needed for SolidWorks integration to the Enovia 2014x environment namely, IEF (Integration Exchange Framework Client) and SW connector for client. These installs are located in:  V6R2014x.AM_3DEXP_NativeApps.AllOS.1-11\AM_3DEXP_NativeApps.AllOS\1\DEK-ConnectorforSolidWork\ConnectorforSolidWorks.  Install Steps: 1. Install Java JRE (I use JDK7.51) 2. Install Integration Exchange Framework client x64. Ensure the correct URL path is entered for server.  3. Install Connector for Solidworks client  x64. Enter the View path or accept default (defaults to C:\ENOVIA) 4. To test, browse to windows explorer, double click on the Enovia icon and login.  

3DEXPERIENCE Client License

The following steps will ensure your 3DEXPERIENCE client license is setup correctly: On the client PC, go to ProgramData\DassaultSystemes\ folder (unhide if invisible) Create a folder named Licenses Within this folder, create a text file named "DSLicSrv" Add the "server hostname:4085" to the text file.

What is the current version/hot-fix on my Enovia system?
