Benefits and Description
Windchill 10.1 M020 builds on the Windchill 10.1 M010 capabilities for using publish rules to generate alternate formats for files during WVS publishing. It is now possible to use the New Representation window to select additional optional files to be created. The files and choices available are controlled by the publish rules and by the capabilities of each CAD worker.
The New Representation window shows an example where the selected option has the STEP and IGES files by default, with the DXF file as an option in the Additional Files section. The user can select or deselect files as needed.
