The SOLIDWORKS PDM Data Extraction Widget is a 3DEXPERIENCE widget that extracts data from 3DEXPERIENCE. It allows data sharing between 3DEXPERIENCE and SOLIDWORKS PDM. Customers can use it alone or together with the SOLIDWORKS PDM Import Tool to import data extracted from 3DEXPERIENCE into SOLIDWORKS PDM.
The SOLIDWORKS Extraction Widget gives users a way to extract SOLIDWORKS data out of 3DEXPERIENCE. This widget is geared toward the SOLIDWORKS data model which is based on the UPS/POWER’BY data model.
- Extracts all data in 3DEXPERIENCE relating to an assembly or other item, its related children, all linked CAD data and drawings
- Places the data into a ZIP file.
- Creates an Excel file with all metadata related to the extracted data, such as part number, description, revision, unit of measure, and engineering change information
Users can then share these files with other departments internally or vendors and suppliers to import into their SOLIDWORKS PDM as they collaborate on projects, using the SOLIDWORKS PDM Import tool.
As show below, to create the ZIP file, users click “Generate Report.”
