I am using Windchill PDMLink 9.1. I have already created some AutoCAD formats that use Parameters from Windchill, such as the Revision and Iteration information. I have also used it to share title block information (three line titles) with Windchill that can be changed either in AutoCAD or Windchill.
One thing I would suggest, take advantage of paperspace when using multisheet drawings. Associating multiple sheets to keep them related for revision and promotion processes is a headache.
If you have issues with Autocad locking up when using the linked Workgroup Manager, you are not alone. I use the linked WGM only to log in. I don't use the any of the file menu options (Autocad) that include Windchill, but stick to the basic file menus for open and save. If I have to do any Windchill work I either use a standalone WGM (which means I have to exit the linked WGM AND Autocad) or I open up a browswer and login to Windchill for the server Workspace.
I favorite the Windchill workspace top level folder in the places list in case I chase down a Windows path, that way I can get back to the correct location without having to memorize the path.
I´m on the same situation like you, but I have no idea how to implement revision and status(released or create), could you explain deeply how did you do that, I have been seeking information in forums without success, afer viewing your message.
At this time I have generated a vlisp routine with sheet counter and a titleblock with a lot of fields, but I don´t know how to proceed with this issue
I really appreciate your help
Yes I do windchill as PDM, I have found which was my mistake, as I was working offline I Didn´t see fields for document - PMC..., but now I guess which is the better way to standarize the new format, I mean new drawings have to rename new fromat direct on windchill PDM? or it is possible that each computer have this .dwg on hard disk?
