Dear All CAD experts,
Can anyone let me know how to integrate E3 ECAD toll with windchill?
Is it possible through WGM ?
Zuke E3 is not supported for any of versions of Windchill including 11. - http://support.ptc.com/WCMS/files/168115/en/Windchill11.0F000CADIntegrationMatrix_031116.pdf
You still can zip and upload E3 files as wtdocument to Windchill and link to product structure, but it will be treated as a normal zip file
Instead of Uploading your data to WTDocument.
I would recommend to use ECAD Neutral application. For the other un-supported eCAD tools, we can use ECAD neurtal application to manage the data, BOM, Viewables
When you can manage your eCAD Data, Generate Viewables, BOM, for your Board and schematics
I agree if you can translate E3 to neutral, then you can use it to create Windchill objects and links. Probably you can use Windchill Hooks to automate a lot of these stuffs - taking the pain away from user. I see even Zuken has a PDM Adapter too, may be worth looking at ZPA Integrations | Zuken. The solution depends on your business requirements.
That;s Interesting Just now i came to know Zuken has it's own PLM Integration. Thanks For sharing the info.
Yes there is a way to integrate E3.Series data into both Windchill and also into the Creo MCad applications - although as has been highlighted it is not a PTC product but a Zuken product.
The link to Windchill works really well and covers more than simple document management.
As both a PTC and Zuken reseller we would be happy to advise you of the capabilities and options if you want to contact us from http://highpeaksystems.com
