Converting CAD-files to another format with ArtiosCAD

Post by PixelSwitch » Mon Mar 22, 2021 2:50 pm

Hi everyone,

is it possible to control Esko's ArtiosCAD via Switch? We would like to convert CAD files to another file format automatically. I've already seen a configurator for Esko's Automation Engine, but we just use ArtiosCAD.

Thank you!

There is no configurator for ArtiosCAD for Switch. The only way to automate this is through Automation Engine. So when you have a flow on AE that converts an ArtiosCAD file to something else you can send an ArtiosCAD file from Switch to AE through "HTTP request" to a so-called access point in AE that receives the request and launches the flow. If you also configure that access point as synchronous the resulting file is sent back to Switch when the AE flow ends.
