Manual How can I directly integrate the selected CAD model into the CAD system (PART2cad)? (B2B and OEM portals)

PART2cad (direct integration) simplifies the download of CAD models. These are loaded quickly and directly into the CAD system. Temporarily saving of parts is not necessary.

Proceed as follows:

  1. Make sure that the desired part is specified in the table view (and in the variable view if there are value range fields).

  2. Generate the desired part.

    Once the generation is finished the part is displayed in dialog area Available CAD models.

  3. Click on the link PART2cad.

    -> The direct integration is starting.

    [Note] Note

    The application component PART2cad is required at the workstation when using direct integration.

    Install it during the first run. The necessary installer opens automatically. The installer itself needs Java.

    [Note] Note

    Shortly[a] there will be a change that makes additional Java installation redundant.

    If the message "Your browser does not support the Java Plugin" appears, please click on the link "Please follow these steps" [Shown in Chrome]. Short description of solution: The file *.pnlp needs to be executed by Javaws.exe found in your Java installation (e.g. under C:\Programme\Java\jre\[version number]\bin).

    -> Once Java is installed the PART2cad installation will start. If Java is not installed, there will be no Java logo displayed. In this case click on the link Click here and install Java.

    -> Warning messages may show up. Allow the installation of the component PART2cad.

    During the first run the direct integration PART2cad will be downloaded.

    Following runs will open the dialog Transferring model to CAD. No user interaction is necessary.

    [Note] Note

    Please note the following selection dialog for the version name of the CAD system.

  4. In the drop-down menu select the CAD version where the model is to be transferred. Confirm the selection with Choose.
