REGISTER NOW - Aras Community Network: Europe 2008 - October 17th
We're holding the first ever European community event. Plan now to attend and join us for the ACN Europe 2008 Event: PLM in the Industry - One Day Only!

Don't miss this chance to hear the esteemed Prof. Dr. Martin Eigner explain the progressive innovation in Product Lifecycle Management by Aras, and gain valuable knowledge from other corporate community members.

Date: Friday October 17, 2008

Location: Unterschleißheim, Germany (just outside München)

No Registration Fee: Free to Attend (Space is Limited)

Whether you are a business executive at a division of a large enterprise, a manager at a midsized company, or the IT pro at a start-up, you will get information and insight on PLM best practices so that your company can achieve success with Aras Innovator solutions.

If you or your colleagues couldn't make the trip to the US for the Aras Community Network event this spring, this is the event for you.

It's FREE to attend, and space is limited so registration is required.

FEATURED PROJECT - Thumbnail Images on Forms
This month there's another new community solution for Aras Innovator on the Project site!

This add-on solution is a quick and easy way to add thumbnail images to forms in Aras Innovator.

By installing this community solution you can have pictures of parts, products, drawings, and other images displayed directly on your different forms within the system for a quick, visual reference.

This solution is small add-on that has a big benefit. Users can see a picture of what a part or product looks like which is always helpful.

Thanks much to the guys over in Europe that created and posted this one. People are already starting to take advantage of it!

PARTICIPATE - Expand Search Across CAD & EDA Formats
Wanted to encourage everyone again to help out on the Search project! We're looking to expand the full text search coverage for the Windows Search add-on solution to include all of the proprietary CAD & EDA formats. The solution uses the Microsoft Office SharePoint search technology called an IFilter which currently can index over 200 types of items (including HTML, XML, source code files, Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, and a lot of other file types).

The Microsoft IFilter search technology is completely extensible. Filter add-ins access and parse data in non-plaintext, proprietary formats like CAD and EDA files. Many IFilters for different CAD and EDA file formats already exist. We need your help to locate them all. Send us links!
