Benefits and Description

Windchill 10.1 introduced autonumbering of file names when creating new files in CAD tools, but did not include autonumbering of family table instances. PTC Windchill 10.2 provides a way to apply autonumbering to family table instances for SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, and NX CAD tools. This enhancement expands the support for autonumbering when working within the CAD tool to ensure that autonumbering is consistently applied in different scenarios.
