We're getting new drawing and part numbering methods with EPDM implementation. We are mostly project based and thus are constantly making new parts, each which gets a part number. Most parts will only get one manufacturing drawing.

All - I apologize if this is already out there, but I am very new at this. I have searched and found quite a few discussions, but they seem to be a bit over my head. I am decent at writing code in VBA and was hoping that it would be relatively easy to do the following: Prompt a user with a dialogue box to select a file from the vault and then the code should return the BOM contents.

I've been producing reference drawings for our workshop, that reference 20 parts/assemblies per sheet. If the drawing is checked into our Workgroup vault, and I then go back and search for a different assembly that happens to use one of the parts called in on the reference drawing, ALL the parts from the reference drawing appear in the search results. This has got frustrating for my colleagues, as they search for a drawing that should just reference one part, and suddenly they get a screen full

Has anyone tested this out? I have not specifically disabled IPv6 on any of the client machines and don't know of any issues that this might be causing. Be then the sites a long ways from the data server have delays.

The Admin Permission setting to require comment during a state change seems to be all or nothing. Enabling it requires a comment for all state changes. I would like to require a comment for specific state change. Any suggestions on how I can implement this?

Yesterday we had our first conference call with our VAR to create a work plan for implementing PDM Standard. I was surprised to learn that you needed to have a seat of SW Pro open in order to access PDM. I knew we only had PDM seats for the SW Pro seats we had but didn't know you had to have Pro open to access it. Currently we have 5 users with 4 seats of standard and 2 of SW Pro so we will have to be shuffling in and out of PDM and now I learn we have to do the same with SW.

I got a huge list of SW file names to be batch exported to STP/x_t format. I'm considering to use SW task scheduler. Those files are insub-folderswith unique names and how could I get SW Task Scheduler to find and add all those files to translate?

I log into the vault then right click the vault view and click clear local cache. For example the colder containing my vault view is 212 MB and after clearing local cache it is still 212 MB. The only way I have found to actually clear it is to delete the vault view and recreate it.

Does anyone know if it possible to save you PDM Add-In configuration and restore it on an another machine / user profile? It seems that this is not saved in the sldreg-file via the copy-settings-wizard. Currently I have to configure the PDM Add-In everytime from scratch.

I am thinking about installing 2018 PDM Server sp 1 and deploying SW 2017 sp5 to all of my users has anyone had any issues with this setup or even tried it? I know it supposed to work but wondering if anyone has real life experiences with it. I havent tried 18/17 combo, but 17/16 worked fine, and as you say, it is supposed to work, and i would not hesitate setting this up.

None of our users is able to send notifications (user to user: Tools -> Notify -> A Colleague) - the message I get is Could not send message, Error: " (see the attachment). All notifications set up in workflows (PDM notifications and Send Mail actions) execute correctly and our IT believes there are no restrictions in place to cause PDM messaging failures.

Is there a way to kill this darn shadow? I hate the way it looks with the shadow, it's not hurting the function at all, it just feels sloppy and ugly. That and it's very tough to get them identical in size. Maybe a zoom feature for editing data cards would be nice?

I am needing to input cost information so we can estimate overall unit cost of the entire assembly. I have seen everything under the sun about SW Costing feature in Professional and Premium, but I have a Standard license. I just want to be able to add hard data on purchased parts and some labor rates and time to build on assemblies, and then see that information on the overall assembly BOM.

I have a folder structure with a specific location that houses document templates that only the Admin can check out. This is particularly troublesome when trying to add new templates as the users cannot check out files to edit them during the creation and testing process. Is it possible to set up the folder permissions to allow users to gain check out rights on files that they add to the file vault?

is it possible to limit paste shared to certain filetypes i have an engineer who thinks that he needs to have every pdf he's ever made into every folder he works in. Using a PDM add-in, you can intercept the share operation and cancel it if the share operation file type doesn't match your criteria.
