About CFM

CFM – CAD File Manager (CFM) utility is a client-based application developed by CADOpt that provides a common data link between a ZWCAD and a Windchill server. The core capability of the CAD File Manager (CFM) utility allows you to manage your CAD data within the ZWCAD. When the ZWCAD is connected to the CAD File Manager (CFM) utility, several PDM commands, such as Check-In and Check-Out, are embedded within ZWCAD to enable you to interact with Windchill from the CAD environment.

CFM Utility is developed as a Standalone VB.net application & it does not require support of ZWCAD VBA & ZWCAD.NET extensions.

CFM utility functions seamlessly with the Basic license of ZWCAD Standard version & ZWCAD Professional versions too.
