We are medium sized company but we still don't have EPDM in place. How to convince my management that we actually need it? Maybe some presentations, maybe should I invite Solidworks representative to show us benefits of this system?
excel variables disconnecting I am currently building a new change management process using excell as the basis for the forms and storing them in the vault. i am setting them up so that much of the information in the form also populates epdm variables in the datacard, this is done so that the information is searchable and sortable. currently i have a series of check boxes on the formthat i would like to populate checkboxes on the datacard.
Trying to open image (jpg, png etc) file in PDM Pro with windows photo viewer but EPDM has decided to open them in paint and also check-s out the files (I have never made paint as default photo viewer). Seems like it uses edit command on background or somethign similar. Stupid part is that in windows explorer photoviewer works nicely.
Only started seeing this problem after I installed 2018SP 2 Whenever I open any assembly I have checked out it tells me it is not checked out and ask if I would like to check it out. I click ok, no problems.
At work we do not have a PDM system, and we store all of our CAD files on a network drive. I was wondering if there is a way to use the file search function to search for a value in the custom properties?
After logging into EPDM and either right-clicking to load the custom add-in menus, or loading a data card, I get the following error: "Failed to load add-in mscoree.dll. Reason: Class not registered". I have tried removing all custom add-ins, repairing and uninstall/reinstalling PDM with no luck.
I'm attempting to setup a PDM Standard server and there's a couple of hitch points that I haven't been able to locate answers on. If I'm not mistaken (and I could be), you have to use a local windows user account to connect to the database, then input credentials for the actual SQL/PDM system. From reading around, it seems you can bypass needing separate windows user accounts by using the automatic login.
These used to work and an EPDM folder would open up in File Manager that housed the linked file. The hyperlinks have the form"conisio://EPDMVault/explore?projectid=12345&documentid=6789&objecttype=1". Instead I get a pointer/cursor in a hand shape with a "W" in the middle showing in Acrobat when I hover over the link (any link).
Does anyone know if it is possible to have the Web2 interface to PDM Pro, to open up the files in eDrawings Pro instead of the built in viewer? I want to use Web2 in our workshop giving the guys the ability to use "measure" in assemblies and parts.
I have customized print jobs, but can not print drawings automatically in order - after drawing number. The drawings must be printed after drawing number. 001, 002, 003, ..., 010, 011, ..., 100, 101, ...
I opened a drawing file and edit data card , but after saving or check in the changes disappear . What is the solution of this problem ? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9
My vault does not allow for checking in any items with references outside the vault but I keep getting pulled into issues where someone checks out an assemblies then creates a reference outside the vault and proceeds to have issues. I am hoping there is a way to run a report on this but i am not sure if it could read information from a checked out file. Yea, check out the knowledge base for the following solutions:
Are you using out-of-the-box PDM tasks in your workflow? Did you know that it is possible to customise the scripts for the task to get more functionality? I have published a blog post describing the techniques for customisation and debugging of PDM built-in tasks (such as Convert Task):Code Stack: Customizing SOLIDWORKS PDM Convert Task
Linking different file data card variables In EPDM, how do I set up link between variables of two different file data cards? I want to bring in ECO# from my ECO data card (doc) to DWG file data card (slddrw).
Silly question but my file view shows the number of objects & size in the lower left corner. No one else has this & I have no idea how to modify so everyone sees the same think. Turn on the Windows Explorer status bar:
I'm having problems adding a debug add-in to the PDM Admin tool. When I click "Add Add-in" and select the .dll, it appears in the list of installed add-ins. However, when I click "OK" and then reopen the Debug Add-ins window, it disappears from the list.
