Completely new to SW PDM. In our older PDM system I could just hit a button and all the Balloon numbers would be translated into the PDB BOM. I actually haven't tried this yet in my test environment but I was told we can't do that with SW PDM. Is that true?

As I understand, with PDM you have a revision scheme and versions. We used to show just the revision of the file (Smarteam days) on drawings. Check in and check out created a new rev/sub rev (01.1 to 01.2 to 01.3 and then released to 01) but with PDM Pro I've been introduced to versions. The current workflow has the versions changing at check in and check out but the revision only changes when a "Status" change happens.

Solidworks version is 2018x based on the Unifed Product Structure. PDF generation seems to be turned off when Solidworks is talking to the 3dX platform. When the drawing is saved to the database we would like to automatically create a pdf file and save it to the platform.

There has been a request to have the number of sheets that are in a SoolidWorks drawing displayed on the file Data Card.This information will be used for various reports (data transfer, etc.) and can be added manually, but we were looking for an automatic solution, say when the drawing transitions from one State to another. Any ideas? ,drawing_sheet_properties

Re: EPDM - The archive server connection socket could not receive data We've been receiving this same message since November, randomly throughout the day. We did what Richard Bremmer suggested (IPV6), and this did not fix our problem.

We run PDM Standard currently and the "Vault View" window within the "Search" Tab/Drop Down is constantly resizing itself to the default size/spacing. It's not a deal breaker by any means but it's frustrating that every time we open the search function (to be specific it's only after an initial opening for the day, once adjusted it stays put for the day but resets after being closed for the day) the area in question needs to be resized or we can only see four to five files without scrolling

Our information security team is requesting that all SQL servers be required to only accept secure connections using TLS 1.2. All other protocols are to be disabled. During initial system install we tested these settings on the SQL server and PDM stopped connecting.

All, We run into this often, and I cannot figure out how it happens, or what is causing it. In this example I have a drawing file and an assembly 602243, this is the top level and yet upon check in or check out we see this...

Is there a way to stop PDM from logging into the vault until it’s called on i.e., PDM folder selected, SolidWorks launched, etc. on our mobile workstations? Our Archive Server Default Settings are set as Login > Windows Login > Automatic Login (Domain/Group).

In PDM, what is the best way to check a child part state when an assembly is going through a transition? For Example, I have Assembly A with Parts 1, 2 and 3. I want to make sure parts 1, 2, and 3 are in "Released" states before the Assembly can go through the transition. If anyone knows how to do this, or can make some recommendations on the best approach I would really appreciate it.

Also, in the output file name, are you using a variable caleed Revision, or the Source file revision? (which are two different things) When a part gets approved through the workflow, it goes to Rev A. After doing this, I use the Convert to PDF task.

Solidworks PDM Email Notifications randomly stop working in SW2018 SP4.0. IT has to reboot the server after hours and this resolves the issue. Is there a more permanent fix for this?

From my understanding, a SPACE indicates "or", so when i type "Bracket seat", all files containing Bracket, seat or both should be searched for. Also a * indicates a wildcard, so "Bracket*seat" should work from my understanding.

We have an existing workflow (I inherited) that ends up with 3 different release states (Release, Release for Build, Engineering Release). Release and Engineering Release we want to use an alpha scheme (A, B, C...), while Release For Build (RTB) we want to use numeric (1, 2, 3...). It's not currently working as desired, plus I see various inconsistencies in the state and transition settings.

I have a dedicated task host computer to run Convert to PDF during our transitions in our workflow, occasionally a drawing gets hung up in the task computer, and the task computer will actually will have the drawing checked out. Doesn't the print pdf task just open the drawing and convert to pdf. Why would the task computer be checking out the file.? It happens less then 10% of the time but when your releasing 100+ drawings daily that's a lot of phone calls to log into the task computer and

What version of SOLIDWORKS are you using? If you search in the latest release it will search through data within the file too. You can also specifically search through a features of parts within the directory by using the drop down (see image below)
