Creating a Serial Number from an Add-in

If a list or format string does not cover your needs, you can use a SOLIDWORKS PDM serial number add-in to create a serial number.

To create a serial number from an add-in:

  1. Use the Administrate Add-ins dialog box to add the serial number add-in to the vault. See Installing SOLIDWORKS PDM Add-ins.
  2. Right-click Serial Numbers and select New Serial Number.
  3. In the Serial Number dialog box, enter the serial number name.
  4. For Type, select Serial number from add-in.
  5. In the Name of add-in list, select the add-in.
  6. In Next counter value, set the starting value for the serial number. You can start from any integer number.
  7. Click OK.
