Enhance your design drawings to be more easily inspected

When it comes to inspection, information contained on a drawing is usually hard to read and manage. Instructions can come in the form of notes. Companies usually create one general note and place it on the first drawing sheet. The general note contains pertinent information about the drawing in numbered notes. These numbered notes are referenced in the drawing by using corresponding symbols.

When reviewing PDF drawings, it can be hard to read the notes as it is necessary to constantly sift through the pages to the first sheet where all the notes are located.

In addition, section views of parts or assemblies can be difficult to locate especially on multi-sheet drawings.

Optimize drawing notes and section view inspection

ETRAGE SmartPDF provides you with the ability to get the note text as an annotation each time a user hovers their mouse over the note symbol in the PDF.

The SmartPDF also provides the functionality of selecting section view call-out symbols and automatically changing the view of the drawing to the sheet and location of the related section view.

SmartPDF is an add-on to the ETRAGE Plot Service™ for PTC® Windchill®, which improves your viewing experience of the created PDF by adding Annotations and Zone References.
