When setting Visualization Service to publish Positioning Assemblies , there's no way to generate a thumbnail
Need a way to generate this in order to have thumbnails on EPMDocument and WtParts info pages
refer to Article:
Article - CS9029 - SPR 1990400
If the CAD worker is configured to generate thumbnails during publishing, it should be capable of generating this image while the assembly is loaded into session, especially in the case of extended positioning assemblies. I know for a fact that all models are being loaded into session during extended positioning assembly publishing because I'm generating STEP files as an additional file during their publishing, and the STEP file would be empty if everything wasn't in session during it's creation.
Yes, like the article says, generating a thumbnail after the representation is already created isn't going to work, but it should be possible during representation creation.
Yes it should be possible during creation or even after with a "low priority" worker...
this point was discussed with @romorrison during Liveworx. It is more to know if it is now in the backlog .
The reason that it doesn't generate a thumbnail is for two reasons:
We are looking into the feasibility of updating the thumbnail worker to process positioning assemblies and retrieve the branch links prior to generating the thumbnail. We are also looking at a different mechanism for scheduling the regeneration of thumbnails only on a lower priority so that it would address the issue of them going out of date.
This is something that is in the backlog but we do not have a release confirmed for this yet.
