Kindly guide whether it is possible to Autogenerate PDF from windchill drawing after each promotion request of a part number .PDF has to be stored to a server (Not in Windchill) where production can retrieve it. we are using windchill 2.0 windchill ,windchill projectlink 22.214.171.124. Thanks
Thank you Andy! @gkarthikyn Fishbowl has a few approaches that are popular with a number of customers. Feel free to reach out if you would like more information. Best, Rick
Windchill will publish the Creo drawing as a PDF if you configure Windchill accordingly. This PDF is kept within Windchill. You need some kind of a custom APP to push the PDF outside of Windchill. You need to be careful that you are pushing the correct PDF... it is possible to write something that might accidently push an out of date PDF. This is where experience pays off.
how about Afterloader method Option 2 and alternative 2,
"Optionally download a copy of the EPM Document's attachments created at step 1 to a designated folder on a local or network hard disk on Windchill server"
Yes, you just need to write code and insure there are rules so it doesn't download out of date content and that it has proper error handling if anything fails. Or you can purchase such a solution from a PTC Partner that is already developed and supported.
