Office2PDM addin for MS Office

Users have long enjoyed the ability to check their SolidWorks files into and out of the Enterprise PDM vault from directly inside of SolidWorks. This is because Enterprise PDM has something called the CAD Editor that is a SolidWorks Addin that runs directly inside of SolidWorks.

Extensible CAD Technologies has developed an office editor to enable users to work with their MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint files in exactly the same way. Currently, users must close their MS Office files and then operate on them in Windows explorer.

Although we haven’t released the application for sale just yet, we are very close. In the meantime, we are offering a free beta version on our website to anyone who is willing to try it out and give us feedback. You can download the beta version from here: Office2PDM Beta

Note: We still have a little work to do including the help file. Also, after you save a new document you must hit the Refresh button. This is a temporary workaround and will be resolved shortly.

Send all feedback to support@extensiblecad.com
