Article by Joe Medeiros, CSWE updated June 23, 2017


SOLIDWORKS PDM Tasks are useful tools for automating processes, such as Printing, running the SOLIDWORKS Design Checker and Converting files.

When creating or editing a Task, this can be done from File Card tab, of the Task Properties dialog box.
