  • Formtek EDM Module for Alfresco
  • Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD
  • Formtek EDM Managing Drawings with External References

The Formtek EDM Module is the base software component of the Solution, and installs on the Alfresco server. It provides a pre-configured content model, complete with metadata properties and forms, for both engineering documents and drawings.For management of AutoCAD files, the EDM Module includes a converter which automatically renders DWG, DWF, and DXF file types to thumbnails and flash (SWF) for viewing within Alfresco Share. If Formtek’s free PDF Rendering extension is installed, PDF renditions of AutoCAD files can be generated on-demand and stored in the repository. 

The EDM Module also extracts attributes present in AutoCAD files, including those in the drawing title block, and maps the extracted data to EDM properties within Alfresco.
