As we wrap up things towards the end of the year, I wanted to talk a little bit about how you can set up our Augmented Business Visualization sample PX with Agile 9.3.3. If you are running Agile 9.3.3, and are using Agile EC to manage your 3D CAD data, it is quite simple to set it up so that users can create new ECRs or ECOs directly from the 3D view in AutoVue. There are a couple of constraints around the sample PX - for example, you need to have the CAD connector configured so that the part, design and CAD file name all have the same name - but the PX is relatively easy to extend if this doesn't apply in your environment.
If your 9.3.3 system matches the constraints of the PX, all that is needed is to copy the PX file into the Agile extension folder - Once the PX is installed, you will be able to right click on any part in your 3D models, and create an ECR or ECO - and have the current assembly and the part you selected added as an affected item to the new object.
You can see what this looks like in action in a video on our youtube channel with the link below:
There is a whitepaper that describes in more detail how the PX sample works, and gives advice on how to set it up and extend it if necessary
The sample PX and the whitepaper can be found on OTN: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E49948_05/otn/doclist.html - the specific links are Whitepaper and PX Sample
I'll close with wishing you all a happy holiday season whatever holiday you may choose to celebrate, and a happy new year! We'll talk again in 2015!
