SolidWorks with Windchill Question

We have recently integrated SolidWorks with PTC Windchill. Previously, I have used, NX w/Teamcenter and on the feature tree there was columns for the Revision, State (Released,Obsolete), etc.  Do you know if SolidWorks has anything similar to that?  See attached screenshot for an example.

Re: SolidWorks with Windchill Question

All this type of info is available in work group manager but not in SW itself.  We also extensively use SW integrated w/Windchill.

Re: SolidWorks with Windchill Question

I know its in WGM, but it would be really helpful in SW, I think this is a big flaw on their part.  I am pretty sure the other CAD software has this feature.  I know NX and Solid Edge do, and I believe Creo does as well.

Re: SolidWorks with Windchill Question

Yes, in Creo can add all desired columns to the model tree - major convenience.

All of us in our group are long-time Creo users, struggling every day w/the limitations of the SW integration.  More and more going to SolidWorks though, so have to keep supporting.

Re: SolidWorks with Windchill Question

Yes, a quick search shows this is possible via "Assembly Visualization".  Just add additional columns for whatever attributes you're interested in.

You can always create SolidWorks Add-In showing all relevant information in a convenient way (see the attachment).

Hi DmitryC,

 

How did you make this add-in?

Hi John,

 

There are quite a few topics and videos showing how to start. This is one of them. Then it will depend on what you want to do really.

Re: SolidWorks with Windchill Question

I wonder if this can also be accomplished with Inventor?
