I am hoping somebody already figured it out, and it is not a costly customization...

Watermark rev of wt.part on the published drawing

Your terminology is a bit confusing. Do you mean WTPart or (CAD) .PRT?

We include Drawing Number, Name & Version in the watermark. This uses standard watermark configurations (we hard branch to watermark file with state hard coded because this was buggy in the past; may revisit). A printed / emailed drawing is traceable to a single object in the system.

RE: Watermark rev of wt.part on the published drawing

Here is to clarify:


The watermark is applied by CreoView/WVS publishing.


The Rev of the WTPart is needed to be on the watermark as well as the date of the release change - we might have rev of the drw different from rev of the WTPart (example: multiassembly drawings)

RE: Watermark rev of wt.part on the published drawing

Need Help. 1st time trying to implement watermarking for DRW Printing & Viewing.

I followed the ptc tans/tpis/etc & still not working. Below is my prefs file. Attached is my ini file (asf_01.ini).

I would also like to add date & Version, but have not found the proper property. Only found "epmdoc_lifeCycleState".

I have also attached what the General/Watermark preferences & mapping are set to (image prefs.jpg).

server_prefs.xml also attached.

Any help would be appreciated.

One approach (which we use) is to have a number of watermark files, and to have the system select the one needed at the time of viewing - based on current lifecycle state of the parent object. This requires no coding - just configuration thru the Creo View GUI and loading of the resulting text file.

You can have the system use one of a variety of criteria to select which watermark file to apply; in our business, lifecycle state is the only one that makes sense.

Note: This benefits greatly from some good discussion with all affected parties. One can choose to

* embed the watermark in the viewable at the time of publishing, or

* select and apply it at the time of viewing.

Embedding it of course requires re-publish after each state change.
Selecting and applying at the time of viewing is elegant and in our opinion the only way to go.

Need to prepare multiple watermark files and load them here

This stuff is not necessarily all that evident from PTC documentation...

RE: Watermark rev of wt.part on the published drawing

Thanks Mike,

Look at my attached files, because I think I am doing what you suggest. But just for simple DRW to show LC State & Date.
Then eventually add Version (dont know the property for that yet. cant find it in support search).

You showed option:

embed the watermark in the viewable at the time of publishing

I am trying to set this up to add watermarks for all DRW PDF's published.

I cant get the watermark to show anywhere. When publishing or just viewing. I am probably just one step off.

Thanks
Larry

I did find the properties for Revision & Date:

I am placing them in this message, so others can find them in future searches.

Watermark rev of wt.part on the published drawing

So the title of this thread is "Watermark rev of wt.part..." but so far I have only seen solutions for watermarking EPMDoc properties on the drawing. Does anyone have a solution for watermarking associated wt.part information on the drawing?

As far as I know, the viewable of the associated EPMDocument (either drawing or 3D model - configurable globally) is mapped to the WTPart and displayed. No attributes from the WTPart are part of what is displayed in CreoView.
