DWG Parser uses a server side service and web parts to allow you to define the attributes to be extracted from a title block and the SharePoint document library properties to be populated when the DWG file is added to the repository. This automatic extract of title block attributes aids viewing, searching and eliminates manual data entry error.
The DWG Parsersystem contains three components:
- DWG Block Parser – This component handles parsing of DWG file block attributes. It is installed on the SharePoint server.
- DWG Block Parser Web Service – This service enables the client configuration tool to communicate with the SharePoint server and set configuration information used by the DWG Block Parser. It must be installed on the SharePoint server with the DWG Block Parser.
- DWG Parser Client Configuration Tool – This tool allows users to configure the parsing of different title block formats for existing SharePoint Document Library Content Types. The configuration tool may be installed on any Windows client that can communicate with the SharePoint server.
