Engineering Data Management: Formtek EDM Announces Support for Alfresco 6 and Enhanced AutoCAD Rendering

By Dick Weisinger

Available for Alfresco Version 6 on Windows or Linux

Formtek’s Engineering Data Management (EDM) Solution for Alfresco provides for flexible yet secure management of engineering documents and drawings. The Formtek EDM Module provides for extraction of AutoCAD® block attributes and mapping to Alfresco properties, association of the base drawing to its XRefs within the repository, automatic rendering of AutoCAD and MicroStation file types for viewing in Alfresco Share, and much more.

In addition to Alfresco 6 support, this release includes:

  • An updated CADConverter executable that resolves several issues
  • Embedded image support in transformations when the image is embedded using the AutoCAD Raster Design IEMBED command
  • Support for the global property for the “Delete files on upload” option in Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD 3.2
  • Support for Japanese characters (stroked out) in the drawing PDF preview

Partners and Customers can refer to Knowledge Base Article 474 in the Formtek Online Support portal for software and documentation.
