Converting a SOLIDWORKS Drawing File to PDF

To convert a SOLIDWORKS Drawing file to PDF:

  1. In the Administration tool, configure the Convert task.
  2. Edit a workflow transition to add an action to execute the Drawing to PDF Convert task.
    When you change the state of a SOLIDWORKS Drawing file using a transition on which the Drawing to PDF Convert task is set, SOLIDWORKS PDM runs the task. The task:
    1. Launches a SOLIDWORKS session on the client computer.
    2. Opens the SOLIDWORKS Drawing file.
    3. Saves the file as PDF.
