Automatic Processing of Content on SolidWorks Workgroup PDM Server

Written by Edwin Chung
Published on November 25, 2013

One of the powerful features of a full enterprise product lifecycle management (PLM) system is being able to post process content uploaded to it. For example, adding a watermark, or changing a revision of a document automatically. The idea behind Solidworks Workgroup PDM Server is for small groups of MCAD engineers to be able to share and collaborate on drawings, parts, etc.. But what if we want to be able to add a draft watermark to a Solidworks drawing, or have a custom field populated when the item is checked-in?

We can do this by enabling a few options in the operating system and setting up triggers within the Workgroup PDM Server software. I’ve written up a document on how to do this, feel free to download it here. If you have any comments or questions, send them my way, I’ll be happy to assist!
