New Advanced Conversion Options for DXF / DWG Conversion Task (Unfolded Reports)

Effectiveness: PDM Pro 2019 and newer & SOLIDWORKS 2018 or newer

New in the conversion tasks of SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, it is now possible to obtain the unfolded sheet metal reports in DXF / DWG format files. The task can be configured to run on demand or through the workflow.
