Archiving MasterCAM files with PDM Professional (EPDM)

Archiving MasterCAM files with PDM Professional (EPDM)

Does anybody have experience with controlling MasterCAM files with PDM Pro? Looking for a procedure to implement. I'm thinking about adding the MasterCAM file as a refernce to the model so that it travels through our CAD workflow. When the model is revised, the CAM file is locked down and a notification etc is sent to the Shop indicating the CAM file needs to be updated etc before they can be used. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Archiving MasterCAM files with PDM Professional (EPDM)

I held off hoping someone else had direct experience with this. What we do, which may not be related, is save a flat pattern DXF as a File and upload that to PDM. It is not referenced to the model, and forces users to do a manual update of the file and a "safety check" of sorts.
