At the completion of a drawing we normally have to create a PDF and dwg version of the solidworks drawing. These are also stored in the vault. Is it possible to drag the data/variables stored in the drawing file into a dwg or PDF file?

We implemented the EPDM server a while ago, to NOT ALLOW duplicate files. We are wanting to migrate data into the system which has several duplicate files in many folders in many locations. Are we able to remove the duplicate file names on the server without experiencing any problems...........any advice to doing this is appreciated.

If you have the newest Adobe Reader which is called Acrobat Reader DC, your EPDM preview windows may have some extra panes that get in the way of previewing your file. Here is what it might look like: The Bookmarks pane on the left and the Tools pane take up most of the space, leaving little room for the actual preview.

Is it a way to see my file directly in PDM Preview like office file or SW file. Jive Software Version: 2016.3.7.0, revision: 20170413171635.a36c780.nomerge_2016.3.7

When searching in the VRC knowledge base, I found, that it needs a full install of Solid Edge (API) to read the properties into the SWX PDM. Does anyone know ad hoc, if this is still the case in 2018? If so: does anyone know, why this is so limitated? 3D Interconnect reads native Edge properties into the resulting SLDPRT.

Hello Everyone, I would like to edit the "convert to jpeg task" in order to get the isometric view of part or assembly in the generated jpeg file.I don't have the right knowledge about programming or API and i need this automation for my company.I need your help thank you in advance. In the task properties, go to "Output File Details" in there you'll see "Advanced Scripting Options". The code in there is the code that actually opens the file and then saves it.

Anyone know where this option is in the Administration set-up for EPDM. I remember I had this turned on in the last system. Are you talking about Save and Check in as shown in the image?

On the creation of a new project/machine using a template the variables are not populating in the vault explorer columns. Why is this? They are shown in "View Values".

Currently when I search Where Used of a selected part file, I may receive many results. I then select each assembly and browse to in a new window. Then I select the Contains tab to see the contents of that particular assembly. One of the columns is the Configuration Name.

We have Solidworks PDM within our engineering company, We are looking to set up a new file plan to streamline processes and archive the old one. To this end the preferred option would be to create a new vault and migrate pertinent documents and drawings across from one vault to the other. I have been informed that in doing this we lose version control and migrating one document across will mean that it starts at version one even if in the old vault it was on version 4 say. Firstly is this

I don't quite understand what I'm doing wrong. I am using PDM Client on a fairly large assembly with a number of subassemblies in SW2017 SP2.0. It seems like whenever I get the latest version of a subassembly, it overwrites the main assembly that I have checked out. It will ask me to Save As a new file or load the version in the vault.

" We even go so far as to remove SolidWorks Explorer from our installs, which is what puts pack and go in the right click menu. It can cause real havoc in EPDM if users use it to rename or move files as it deletes the original file and creates a copy in the new location with no version history..." Can someone explain this in more detail or validate that the above statement is right. or have a good reference why "Pack and Go" is needed/not when using EPDM which has Copy Tree?
