The following applies if you are using a version of the software before Update 34. For the latest information, see Configure viewing of Hexagon PPM drawings or models.
For Hexagon 2D or 3D files published to or stored in the database after this configuration is complete, SmartPlant Foundation can automatically generate the WebGL viewer files, attach them to the document, and store them in the vault. For WebGL viewer files to be automatically generated, you must enable the Auto generate WebGL viewer files option in the system options.
In the system options, select the Auto generate WebGL viewer files option. For more information on the system options, see Configure the system options.
If WebGL viewer files are not automatically generated, verify that the default configuration has not been changed. For more information, see Problems generating WebGL viewer files.
Enabling automatic generation does not create WebGL viewer files for Hexagon 2D or 3D files published to or stored in the database prior to this configuration. If there were already Hexagon 2D or 3D files published to or stored in the database before you configured the software, you must manually generate the WebGL viewer files for those files. You can generate in batch using the Create Renditions in Batch command. For more information, see CreateRenditionsInBatch client API and Create and view batch renditions. For instructions, see Manually generate WebGL viewer files for Hexagon PPM 2D and 3D files already in the database.
