We're playing with SW2009 Premium SP5.1, along with SW2011 Premium SP5.0, local install, no PDM (not my option), Win XP x64.
For a client we have some projects in SW 2009, involving biiiiig assemblies and customer's own components library. They have ENOVIA, we don't.
The customer was cautious and send us: templates for parts, assemblies, drawings (20 types), BOM templates, Sheet Formats, some symbols and a Drafting Standard. On this point, I want to build a set of rules for Design Checker, based on provided Design Standard. I mean I would like that DC open and read all information from Design Standard file (sldstd) and save a DC swstd file - a SW file to another SW file. Problem is I don't know how to do this.
Does SW have a tool for this task? Or we need to have/build a macro/API to achieve this goal?
Why isn't able DC to open customer's templates and read all custom properties embedded there and build rules based on those properties? It is a workaround for this?
Btw how can I read data from a Design Standard, other than importing it inside SW?
Thx in advance.
