The Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD® is a component of the Formtek EDM Solution for Alfresco.  It allows users to interact with the Alfresco content repository directly from within the AutoCAD application and includes functionality to browse, open, check-in, check-out, and view/edit metadata. The Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD also maintains the integrity of referenced drawings (XREFS), as well as other types of referenced files (DGN, PDF, raster, etc.), by automatically associating them to the current drawing within the Alfresco repository. When a drawing is checked-in or checked-out from AutoCAD, the EDM Connector presents the user with a list of all associated files, which the users can then select for check-in or check-out in association with the current drawing.
