Tip of the Month | Add detail to your SWOOD operations by attaching PDFs
Did you know that you can add PDFs to all of your machining operations to provide great detail on what the operation does which tool it uses and any other data that you can include in a PDF document i.e. pictures and graphics?
To add this simply right click an operation and select the “Edit” option. In the right-hand side of the screen there is a unique 36-character ID number for each operation.
Once you know the ID name close the dialog and head over to the folder called: “Machining” in your Swood Data folder. In here you will find the matching ID number in the form of an .efieu file. Right click to use the rename feature in windows and copy the ID number minus the file extension to save typing the whole name.
Now if you save a PDF in the same location with the same name as the ID back in Swood you will be able to right click and select the “Show PDF” option so all uses can find out more detail on this operation at a glance.
