---CAD files with Sharepoint: issues and work around them RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    We are trying to use SP with Cad files - references don't work properly. Is there a way to fix it other then 3rd party tool?

    Thank you.

  • Not that I know of. We have some clients work with CAD files and since CAD does some weird stuff (adding temporary files) it makes it really problematic to work with SP2010.

    I think that third party is your only option mate.

    Cheers

  • Michal,

    Could you suggest the third party tool.

    The query is as such

     Need a custom ACTIVEX control that will work to open dwf and dwg files in edit mode at SHAREPOINT 2010.
       Or
     If there is a way around to open dwf and dwg files in edit mode at SHAREPOINT 2010.

     

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi there,

    It really is hard to point you at "The best" 3d party tool. Take a look at what is out there and ask your questions to them to check if they can actually do what you want.

    You must decide on cost, functionality, future adaptions or other factors to see which is best for your organisation.
