I am trying to create a task withing SolidWorks PDM that, when triggered on a workflow transition, would save out a SolidWorks document as an eDrawing file. I can do this by using SolidWorks in a script within a task, but SolidWorks comes with a lot of overhead. What I am trying to do is to trigger eDrawings to open a SolidWorks file from the vault. Then have eDrawings save the file as an eDrawings file on a network share. eDrawings has much less overhead. In my testing this process, eDrawings if faster, and creates a slightly smaller file.
I can't figure out how to make this happen. Does anyone have any suggestions or bits of code they would be willing to share?
