We have the Theorem Inventor worker for Publishing the Inventor files to ProductView. PDF does not appear to be an option for publishing drawings. Has anyone else found a solution to publish Inventor drawngs with PDF as the viewable?
Plot Service for Windchill (PSW) from Etrage LLC can automatically publish Inventor drawings managed by Windchill to PDF format.
PSW has three operating modes for publishing. The first is to automatically monitor Windchill and process objects when there has been a Lifecycle or Revision change or at Check-in. The second is a batch mode where PSW will process all models identified in a text file list. The third is through an On-Demand mode where a user can search for models and execute requests in Windchill for required drawings, parts or assemblies.
We also recently integrated the Theorem Solutions CADverter interoperability applications with PSW to automate the translations to other CAD applications such as CATIA V4, CATIA V5, SolidWorks, UGS and other 3D format files.
PSW is available for evaluation in your environment or I can arrange a Web demonstration for you.
