Formtek Engineering Data Management (EDM) Solution is Alfresco Certified Technology that provides for flexible yet secure management of engineering documents, drawings and AutoCADÂ® files.
Upon upload, the EDM Module will extract attributes present in AutoCAD DWG or DXF files, including title block attributes, and map them to the predefined and/or custom content model properties in Alfresco. The EDM Solution also provides the capability to associate and synchronize the base drawing to its external references (XRefs) within the Alfresco repository. The EDM Module includes a converter which automatically renders AutoCAD (and MicroStation) file types to thumbnail and vector PDF for viewing in Alfresco. Options for display include the current view of the base drawing, all views of the base drawing, or the complete drawing with all XRefs.
Synchronization with AutoCAD can be achieved with the addition of the Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD.
