we are using the PDM to release the drawing to non engineering using PDF, we need a control on printing like some wtermark having login and date and time should appear on the pring. please suggest.
The following links may give you some ideas on how to approach this:
Thank you Matthew,
I have tried the time.swp macro.
Actualy i require the Dynamic watermark. If some user takes the print then we should know when and who has taken.
No automated SolidWorks function can do that without API and perhaps even a SQL server. You'll need a PLM.
Dear Jesse Seger,
I need the control on printing the drawing. We are using PDMW ro release teh drawing to manufacturing, Quality etc.
We have given RO access to these department. When they take the print, there should be dynamic watermark to show who and when the print has taken.
How are these departments accessing the vault??
Keyword "API". This is a merry path that you may not wish to skip down. There's a lot more commitment required than just to say "here's a macro, run it". And if you are in a regulated environment, then you will definately need a lot more than just a few lines of code.
Thanks for your reply.
I can save the eDrawing drawing as a jpeg or tiff.
