I have a functioning Nucleus server on my Windows PC (localhost) and I am the only user. I have both the Nucleus Navigator (3.1.2) and Drive (100.1.11) installed.
I have been experiencing stage behaviour recently, namely items saved to Nucleus often (but not always) seem to save but then have no geometry and a blank usd file.
I have experienced this strange behaviour when saving from both Isaac Sim (2022.1.1) and Create (2022.2.2)
I recently loaded the ‘Cad Converter’ extension v102.5.5 and it works great although I can find very little documentation on it at present.
Using the above I have now managed to re-create a definite repeatable Nucleus issue:
I have a SolidWorks CAD assembly for a Fanuc Robot (from GrabCAD) saved on my PC hard drive and also there is an exact copy of this saved on my Nucleus.
If I use ‘Import’ from Create and use the file located on my c: drive as the import file target then all works as expected. Image attached.
However if I use the file import target located on my Nucleus it fails as below:
No messages are generated in the console as you can see.
I have attached the files (zipped, with no password) ImportOK and ImportFAIL.
I have therefore now resorted to not using Nucleus until I am sure the issue of random save failure sis resolved.
With regards to the CAD Converter I would like for instance to cull Prims that are totally enclosed in other Prims, e.g. gears in a gearbox, on import to help reduce data count. I’ve done this when writing CAD importers for other simulation tools myself so I guess the Hoops API, which I believe the CAD Converter uses, can do this?
