Benefits and Description

PTC Windchill PDMLink contains out-of-the-box templates for all supported third-party CAD tools. This allows CAD users to create new CAD documents using the New CAD Document feature without having to first configure templates. Customers can modify the out-of-the-box templates, so they are able to get started more quickly without having to create templates from scratch. Customers still have the ability to create their own templates.
