Hey all,

Just joined the forum and I hope someone can give me some info on this.

A little background:

We have been using Autocrap, oops...sorry I mean Autocad for many years and we are finally going to move into to the wonderful world of solid modeling. We tried Solidworks back in 2001 but with the large assemblies we have, it didn't seem to function very well back then. So, it never got off of the ground. Now, they are trying it again full blown with PDMWorks.

We have been using a home grown program to create and save our AC files. It allowes you to input data, such as title of the drawing, project number, size of drawing border, who created it, branch, and then select the folder in which it was to be saved. The program would then take that info and fill in the border, create the next drawing number and save the drawing where the operator specified.

Does PDMWorks operate in a similar way? I mean does it offer some sort of interface to input data such as above, so you don't have to manually go and search for folders to save your file each time you create a part, assembly or drawing?

Any help would be appreciated.
