PDMWorks to eDrawings

Discussion created by Guest on Dec 12, 2005
I was wondering what the best way to save an edrawings file from PDMWorks would be using the API. From what I understand, I will have to save the solidworks files to my harddrive and then open edrawings using their API and save it. I am using SP2.0 of SW 2006 and, according to the documentation, you can't save an edrawings file directly from PDMWorks API any more because of the fact that edrawings will open SW files and so the embedded info isn't included any more. So far I have not had any success getting this going, so if there are any simpler ways of going about this, I would appreciate knowing them.
