I using Windchill WGM 11.0 with Solidworks.


I am required to attach a .pdf file of a drawing to the .SLDDRW file.

I am also required to attach a .STEP file to the part's .SLDPRT file.


These things are done so that someone without Solidworks can still look at the model/drawing.


For now I must manually go into the part, save it as a .STEP file, manually go into the drawing and save the .PDF.  Then I must manually attach these to their appropriate file in Windchill.


I was wondering if there was a way in Windchill that I could have these .STEP and .pdf files automatically saved, and then attached when I check in a part or drawing to Windchill.


Thank you for your help.
