OpenKM - AutoCAD viewer

Ana CanteliWritten by Ana Canteli on 21 June 2016

As part of improving the functionality of the OpenKM Document Management Suite, a new module for handling of AutoCAD drawings is now publicly available.

The module is developed around the CADViewer Pro viewing component.

It allows AutoCAD DWG drawings to integrate directly within the OpenKM Document Management and Records Management Suite.

Complex drawing relationships are fully retained within OpenKM. When users uploads AutoCAD DWG drawings, the system will scan for xRefs (external reference files) within the DWG drawing. It will check against the current set of drawings, if any external references are present. If not, it will query the user to upload the missing AutoCAD reference files. It then builds an internal structure within OpenKM similar to the originating server.

Metadata and text are extracted out of AutoCAD drawings and drawings are made available for searching within OpenKM.

Stored searches

The CAD module therefore provides great efficiency for corporations wanting to search on all resources on a subject including CAD files.

All drawings are graphically represented with a thumbnail and can be previewed in detail online. The drawings are visible directly through the OpenKM preview panel.

Have a look on the following video, that show the  features that the new AutoCAD module provides.
