Fishbowl Solutions, a technology consulting and software development firm supplying solutions to the manufacturing industry, has announced support for SolidWorks and AutoCAD files with its linkLoader for Windchill PDMLink solution.
linkLoader is a data loading tool that can save time by providing an efficient means of importing large amounts of CAD data into Windchill PDMLink. With enterprise solution support for both SolidWorks and AutoCAD, along with PTC Pro/ENGINEER and Autodesk Inventor, customers can now streamline their data migration process while accurately mapping metadata.
linkLoader for Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor, AutoCAD, and SolidWorks locates duplicate files and instances, validates data prior to loading, and verifies family tables for Pro/ENGINEER data. linkLoader then sequences objects to be loaded in the correct order based on their hierarchical relationships, transfers the data from a file system into PDMLink, and maps defined metadata as soft attributes within Windchill PDMLink.
“Many of our customers have CAD data in a variety of file formats. When implementing Windchill PDMLink, they find that using linkLoader allows them to speed up their migration process. As a result, customers can soon start to realize their Return on Investment as well as move forward with other initiatives involving Windchill PDMLink,” said Rick Passolt, business development manager at Fishbowl Solutions.
