SolidWorks Connectors for Aras Product Image

The SolidWorks Connector is your conduit to Aras Innovator Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) from your SolidWorks desktop.  The SolidWorks Connector is fine-tuned to manage Aras CAD Documents for each SolidWorks drawing, assembly or part represented in the CAD hierarchy.  In addition, the SolidWorks Connector enables you to manage Aras Parts for each of your SolidWorks assemblies and part configurations as they relate to your Aras CAD Documents, and also provides the ability to manage your Aras Bill of Materials (BOM) as the complete as-designed CAD hierarchy.
