Minneapolis, MN — October 27, 2009 — ( www.fishbowlsolutions.com) Fishbowl Solutions, a leading technology consulting and software development firm supplying solutions to the manufacturing industry, announces support for SolidWorks and AutoCAD files with their linkLoader for Windchill PDMLink® solution.
linkLoader is a data loading tool that saves time by providing a fast and efficient means of importing large amounts of CAD data into Windchill PDMLink. With enterprise solution support for both SolidWorks and AutoCAD, along with PTC® Pro/ENGINEER® and Autodesk Inventor®, customers can now streamline their data migration process while accurately mapping metadata.
linkLoader for Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor, AutoCAD, and SolidWorks locates duplicate files and instances, validates data prior to loading, and verifies family tables for Pro/ENGINEER data. linkLoader then sequences objects to be loaded in the correct order based on their hierarchical relationships, transfers the data from a file system into PDMLink, and maps defined metadata as soft attributes within Windchill PDMLink.
“Many of our customers have CAD data in a variety of file formats. When implementing Windchill PDMLink, they find that using linkLoader allows them to speed up their migration process. As a result, customers can soon start to realize their Return on Investment as well as move forward with other initiatives involving Windchill PDMLink,” said Rick Passolt, Business Development Manager at Fishbowl Solutions.
