Edit CAD Files
URL graphic

The CAD files customization allows you to post CAD files to a discussion forum and allows you to use TailorMade CADViewer Pro to edit the file. (An evaluation copy of this software is included with Forum.)

To add a CAD file to a discussion forum:

  1. From the discussion forum, click on the Add toolbar item.
  2. Click on the Add a CAD File menu item.
    Note: Add a CAD File is the default text for this menu item. Your manager may have changed it. Contact your forum manager if you need more information.

    The "Add a new CAD file entry" form appears.

  3. Enter a title and a description of the CAD file in the appropriate text boxes.
  4. Click on the first Browse button below the "CAD files" text, and select the CAD file to add to the discussion.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click OK.

To view the file in TailorMade CADViewer Pro, view the document entry and click on the filename in the Drawing Files column of the table. Forum automatically invokes CADViewer Pro and displays the file within that program.

If this feature is of use to you, but the discussion forum does not have it, ask your forum manager to enable it.

In every other way, the CAD entry is identical to a standard document entry in a discussion forum.
