Add watermark functionality when print drawing file and publish to PDF file

Add watermark functionality when print drawing file and publish to PDF file

For current functionality, user cannot apply watermark when print drawing file and publish drawing file to PDF file. As you know, adding watermark is required to deliver file to other company. Now, we have to add note or symbol by manual for watermark. A lots of engineer always complained this.

It would be very useful to have a watermark feature for drawings within Creo Parametric.  You can do this in Creo View but not Creo Parametric.  This way you could have a stable watermark capability that could be driven by parameters, Pro/Program, MathCAD, or PLM attributes at the drawing level.  If the drawing were exported to PDF then the watermark would be there and if the native drawing were viewed then the same watermark is there.  In an idea world this capability would extend to models as well an the watermark might be a type of annotation called watermark that would support MBD.

The watermark functionality is necessary for all types of printing and exports, not only for PDF files.

Please add this important point to Creo Parametric !

There is a workaround to get a watermark in Creo : you can use a download service to propagate from Windchill a parameter value  to a Creo Cad model .

F.i. we had it configured by our Windchill supplier Savaco. If the CAD object is not released, it propagates a value "PROTOTYPE" to a configured drawing parameter. If the CAD object is released the value is empty. If you make a table in your drawing format as big as the format and put that parameter in it behaves as a watermark

Correct. We have tested the functionality of adding watermark on the drawing format with table of parameters and it has worked for our requirement.

Manjunath RV‌..do you have a template for this or any steps to setup this in drawing?

Harsha,

We added a single cell table in the format with the required parameters to show lifecycle state, version and security label of the drawing.

So when a drawing uses this format this table shows up the parameter for that drawing. Like the attached sample.
