Access an AutoCAD file (EPMDoc) from PDMLink without AutoCAD?

Access an AutoCAD file (EPMDoc) from PDMLink without AutoCAD?

We have users at a sister company who need access AutoCAD files stored in PDMLink, but who do not own AutoCAD licenses. When WGM exports an AutoCAD file from a workspace it opens AutoCAD. Is there any way to get the AutoCAD file out of PDMLink without an AutoCAD license? If they were stored as WTDocs the Download function would work, but these are EPMDocs, so I don't seem to have that option. Thanks!

Actually there is a way. Its not straightforward though.



1. Write a Info Engine task with Query-Objects webject for EPM Doc followed by List-ContentItems webject



2. Copy "urlLocation" attribute from xml reposnse and paste into a browser. It will offer you to download CAD file.



Let me know if you need help with the code.
