Can a CAD Worker also create Thumbnails?

Windchill 11.1 m020

 

Can an existing CAD Worker also create thumbnails?

 

As I currently understand it, CAD Workers create the representations, and by default, send that back to the Windchill Server to create the thumbnail.  (Unless the configuration has been changed.)  

We currently have 6 CAD Workers (all Creo workers), and if my understanding is correct, all six are sending the representations back to the Windchill server to have thumbnails made.  This is causing a backlog and needs to be fixed.   So do thumbnail workers need to be created, or is there a setting or configuration to have the already existing CAD Workers create the thumbnails too?

Re: Can a CAD Worker also create Thumbnails?

The short answer is no.   An existing CAD Worker cannot also create thumbnails.   A separate thumbnail worker has to be used.

Hi Marc:

 

Do refer article CS38902  which explains different methods for configuring thumbnail generation, which includes

  • Worker Side
  • Server side
  • Dedicated thumbnail worker. 

You can search for wvs properties mentioned in article for more details & their usage.
