How to display Windchill System Parameters State and Revision in Inventor Drawing.

Hi All,

I have used PTC_WM_REVISION and PTC_WM_LIFECYCLE_STATE in Drawings but it is not working. It might be different from CREO.  Please let me know the procedure to display Windchill System Parameters State and Revision in Inventor Drawings.

Thanks,

Bhagirath

Hi Bhagirath,

With a single statement problem from yourside, I have limited information on the issue you are facing with Autodesk Inventor Drawing.

Hope below information will be helpful, else, please get back with more details of the issue.

 

PTC_WM_REVISION and PTC_WM_LIFECYCLE_STATE are the Windchill Default System Attributes that are added to cad documents once they are managed in Windchill. There is no special procedure to get these attributes in the files.

 

For your reference, please go through page number 80 onwards from below document that provides the details of Windchill Default System Attributes and  configuration of Attributes & Parameters.

Hi Pankaj,

I have to display the drawing Revision and Lifecycle State in Title block of Inventor Drawing, For CREO we will use the following syntax.

&ptc_wm_revision:d - to display the Revision.

&ptc_wm_lifecycle_state:d - to display the State.


Should we use the same syntax in Inventor or Is there a different syntax to be followed in Inventor.

Thanks,

Bhagirath
