Visual 2000 International Inc. announces the second major release of its Adobe Illustrator Plug-In for Visual PLM.net. A follow up to the initial launch in September 2012, Version 2 provides fashion and technical designers with more robust PLM integration by adding new and enhanced image management and product editing capabilities inside the popular CAD software.
According to Charles Benoualid, Visual 2000 Vice President of Research and Development, “We are experiencing tremendous interest in our Illustrator integration tools. Both users and managers like the simplicity of interacting with the PLM system right from the familiar CAD interface. Version 2 adds more and better ways to achieve this. We will continue to aggressively develop this important technology.”
The latest Adobe Illustrator Plug-In gives designers full integration with the Digital Asset Management capabilities of Visual PLM.net. This interoperability enables Illustrator users to:
• Attach Illustrator Artboards to Image Blocks in PLM
• Use images from PLM Image Management in Illustrator
• Preview and Edit images in the Plug-In
• Search images by “Where Used” in PLM
• Delete references of images in PLM products
Illustrator users can also use the tool to search for and edit PLM product and image information through convenient text boxes, dropdown lists, and other menu options added by the plug-in. Version 2 of the plug-in is now available free of charge to new and current Visual PLM.net clients using Illustrator on Mac or PC.
