For those needing a more comprehensive and powerful CAD to PDF converter, InFlow Technology is pleased to offer InFlow CONVERT. The InFlow Technology Labs team developed the CONVERT application to improve the speed, improve the quality, and extend the file type support of mass PDF conversion. The InFlow CONVERT application bolts on to your existing SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional environment using a configurable task, allowing the application to integrate into your existing SOLIDWORKS PDM workflows.
Improved performance – InFlow CONVERT can send PDF publish requests to one of many configured “PDF Drones”, built to process hundreds of requests an hour. If your PDF Conversions are not keeping up with demand, simply add more drones to improve the speed. The InFlow CONVERT command center will automatically determine which drone is available and send the request.
Better integration with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional – InFlow CONVERT uses EDrawings Professional for PDF conversion, providing an exact match to the Preview in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. Many PDF converters use native SOLIDWORKS to create the PDF, which can lead to quality issues as SOLIDWORKS can shift views or dimensions as the drawing is opened. InFlow CONVERT uses integrated Edrawings for SOLIDWORKS files, thus eliminating issues related to drawing rebuilds. What you see in PDM is what you will see on the PDF.
More file support – InFlow CONVERT supports PDF conversion of over 100 drawing and office file formats. Included are the common drawing files types such as SOLIDWORKS SLDDRW, AutoCAD DWG, Inventor IDW, Microstation DGN, and others. In addition, InFlow CONVERT support major office filetypes like Adobe Photoshop, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Visio, Publisher, TXT, Email MSG, and image types like BMP, JPG, and GIF.
Comprehensive Reporting – InFlow CONVERT collects runtime statistics and publishes the numbers to a server on the cloud. Your administrator can login into a website to access and download reports.
