HawkWare Tools: Auto Document Number

Sep 23, 2012
Auto Document Number enhances the already impressive numbering capability present in SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM by providing users a significantly more customizable interface. ADN allows you to set up to 4 categories of prefix/suffix information to attach with a general number incrementer. For example, your number could be Product Line-Product Type-Material-XXXX, Product Line-Product Type-XXXX-Material or any other combination you would like with up to 4 categories. ADN will even rename your file with the new serial if you choose. Best of all, each numbering scheme increments independently of the next so numbers don't get skipped. If you need more flexibility than Enterprise PDM can provide out of the box, this application is for you.
