I have recently been experimenting with SolidWorks MBD, in particular, the 3D PDF publishing functionality. One our company goals in using SolidWorks MBD is to automate the publishing of 3D PDF's as much as possible. While I have noticed many nice features, I still have some questions:
1. Is it possible to automatically create and attach a STEP 242 file with every PDF that is published, instead of ensuring that the option is checked in the "Publish to 3D PDF" property manager?
2. Is it possible to automatically select all of the captured 3D views and only the captured 3D views to be published in the drawing?
I have run into the same question. Is it possible to automatically select all of the captured 3D views and only the captured 3D views to be published in the 3D pdf? We are using PDM for review and sign off and once approved I need for the 3D pdf to be published automatically with all the captured 3D views. Please let me know if you learn any more information.
