What does Cadmes
  • Easily re-use successful projects with the Design Copy tool.

  • Quickly find products and ideas through clear categorization.

  • Your parts list information based on CAD, PDM and ERP data can be easily added to your 2D SOLIDWORKS drawing.

Batch Plot

Collecting, printing and exporting all drawings is often a complex task. Cadmes Batch Plot offers you many extra options and ensures that your drawings quickly reach the people who need them.

  • Saves time by printing manually less often.

  • Users without a CAD system can print drawings.

  • CAD users can continue to work while the server is running the task.

  • Print context-specific properties so that drawings can be re-used.

  • Print project specific data for easy reference during production.

  • Lots of configurable options.


Bom Sync

Using the “Bill Of Materials” from PDM in a SOLIDWORKS drawing offers many advantages. With the Cadmes BOM Sync you can now add the parts list with one click.

  • Adds position number functionality to the computed BOM in EPDM.

  • Provides single source of information for CAD, PDM and ERP by allowing the display of augmented EPDM BOM information on the SOLIDWORKS drawing.

  • Time saving.

  • Smaller chance of error due to direct acquisition of 3D model data.

  • Clear insight into material requirements through automatically supplied dimensions of starting material to ERP.

SaveAs with Drawing

In SOLIDWORKS, “Save As” is often used to create a new variant. This application allows you to do this all at once for a combination of a SOLIDWORKS part and the corresponding drawing.

  • Save SOLIDWORKS parts and associated drawings with one action.

  • Less risk of sequence errors.

  • Better user adoption and productivity.

  • Easily maintained by an internal administrator.

Flat Pattern DXF Export

Automates the creation of a DXF layout for sheet metal parts. This eliminates the repetitive task of opening and creating a DXF export for each sheet metal part drawing.

  • Always the latest version as DXF export.

  • No repetitive manual actions.

  • Direct production control without the intervention of engineering.

Reference Validator

Monitoring the lifecycle status of referenced documents and components is essential, but time consuming. With the Reference Validator you can have SOLIDWORKS PDM perform these checks.

  • Reference Validator enables organizations to use SOLIDWORKS PDM to enforce automated compliance with legal rules.

  • Consistency can be checked automatically by the system.

  • Fewer manual checks, higher quality and fewer (expensive) errors.
