Windchill Bulk Upload Tool and Methodology by Etrage is used by TWeatherford, Inc.

Waltham, MA September 18, 2013 – Etrage LLC announced today that TWeatherford, Inc. has successfully applied Etrage Bulk Loader software tool and methodology in migrating SolidWorks models to PTC Windchill® at a Midwest electronics manufacturing company, owned by a conglomerate.

Etrage Bulk Loader quickly migrates, uploads, and checks in a large quantity of CAD data, CAD metadata, and documents from a Windows file system into PTC Windchill.  Used in conjunction with Etrage SolidWorks Preparation Tool, it identifies model dependencies, validates against existing CAD files in PTC Windchill, and identifies conflicts.

The data migration process is specific to each customer’s needs and involves not only the use of software tools, but also a migration methodology.  The combination of the Etrage Bulk Loader and the company’s unique approach allows for capturing the entire history of CAD models and recreating it in PTC Windchill.

“Our migration methodology and Bulk Loader tool not only enables the migration of CAD models and documents, but it includes capturing of metadata and history”, stated Bojan Rapaic, director of development at Etrage.  He continued, “We control the process by validating what has been migrated against the files already in Windchill, enable editing of attributes, and manage all model dependencies.”

Tim Weatherford, TWI vice president commented, “Using the Bulk Loader and SolidWorks Preparation Tool allowed our team to load a large number of models to Windchill in a significantly shorter period of time.  The preparation tool quickly identified duplicate models and those with missing dependencies which were resolved prior to loading into Windchill. TWI will use the Etrage Bulk Loader for all future migrations from other PLM applications or Windows folders.”

Etrage Bulk Loader migrates PTC Creo® and PTC Pro/ENGINEER®, SolidWorks, and Siemens NX® drawings, assemblies, and parts, AutoCAD® drawings and Microsoft Office documents into PTC Windchill 9, 9.1 & 10, 10.1 & 10.2  Other CAD formats can be added upon request.
