    EPDM and AutoCAD

    Craig Lalumiere

      Hello Everyone!


      I think I am missing things here. I can’t find any real good information on the AutoCAD “add In. “Anybody know of any besides the little bit that’s in the admin Guide about Variables?


      I am looking for information in connections with AutoCAD light 2005 and AutoCAD Electrical 2013.


      My starts off questions are:

      1. Do I need to be running EPDM 2013 to have the 2013 “add in” for AutoCAD?
      2. Is AutoCAD Light Compatible with the “add in?”
      3. Can I run Tasks on AutoCAD files such as print?


      Thanks for any Help!


      I am currently on EPDM 2012 SP5

          Hi Craig,


          1 You will probably need EPDM 2013 SP3 (ToBeReleased) to run AutoCAD 2013 with the add in.

          2 I am not 100% sure, but AutoCAD LT can not run any add in or do any API task (out off the box).

          3 You can run a script via the EPDM task, so probably yes. But only if you know AutoCAD API, there is no default task for this like for the SolidWorks plot taks.

            1. You need to consult with the "Multi CAD Matrix" to see which annual sp releases of EPDM support which versions of AutoCAD.


            2. No: the EPDM Add-Ins only work with full versions.


            3. The EPDM Tasks only work for SolidWorks files,.
