Based on the great responses to the other thread “pdf for Viewable” started by Robert Serhan, I am hoping someone reading this has some experience they can share to help us.
We have successfully configured our Pro E CAD Worker to generate PDF representations of DRW files in our development environment. In our experience this configuration is not well documented and our setup was achieved mostly by trial and error and communication with Tech Support. Somewhere during our re-configuration we “lost” the JPG image that shows up on the DRW properties page. Although it is not essential we would like to keep the JPG if we can. In the future we are hoping to add similarly configured CAD Workers for AutoCAD, Inventor and NX. Any lessons we can learn here will be very useful for us long term.
So I have a couple of questions:
Is there any good documentation available on configuring a CAD worker to Produce PDF representations?
Has anyone else successfully done what we are trying to achieve who would be willing to give us some advice?
Has anyone setup a cad worker for Inventor or NX to produce PDF files?
