Results
The Get Structure action exports the assembly metadata and files such as PDF, JT, and so on and creates a ZIP container with XML containing the metadata and files from Teamcenter. A manifest file is created containing a list of files and related Teamcenter object information.
To summarize, the zip container includes:
Manifest file such as CSV file with an overview of data in the container file.
XML file including the metadata
JT files including the 3D geometry of the parts
PDF and other documents
The container file can be accessed via file URL and used in ThingWorx. It can also be uploaded to a data exchange solution from the URL.
The file URL is provided as property structureFilePath.
The result from the Get Structure action is shown in the figure that follows:
