Lucid Energy’s mission is to turn gravity-fed water pipelines around the world into generators of clean, environmentally friendly energy.

One of the risks of reworking any type of mold — whether it’s vacuum or injection mold or wax injection — is the risk of scraping your original tool. Making sure you've got good information to start is paramount.

Our Teamcenter expert Randy Ellsworth presented on "Delivering Custom Status Icons in Teamcenter" at Siemens PLM Connection 2016 in Orlando, May 16-19.

As custom release status icons have not been incorporated into BMIDE, they must be maintained at the client level. Most companies use a combination of TEM and batch scripting to deliver custom status icons.

A better method is to create a custom ICD that controls the delivery during an Over-the-Web (OTW) installation. If you're a Teamcenter manager looking to implement this method, download the PDF presentation on delivering Custom Status Icons. And click here for more Teamcenter resources.
