Boldon James CAD Classifier family of products brings the benefits of data classification to key design documents produced by specific CAD applications. CAD Classifier for AutoCAD allows users of Autodesk® AutoCAD® to apply relevant visual and metadata labels to CAD documents and receive guidance on labelling policy, all via the user interface common to all Classifier products.
Classification choices are made via the familiar labelling dialog common to all other Classifier products, with a range of fully customizable interface styles including simple single-click buttons. For more advanced classification schemes the users can be guided through a series of labelling choices, reducing complexity and ensuring validity of the final selection. Your Classifier policy can be set to add visual markings to CAD drawings within the plot stamp area in order to ensure that printed documents can convey the classification and other instructions. CAD Classifier ensures that the classification metadata is retained in a persistent form within the file formats commonly used to exchange CAD documents including DXF (Drawing Interchange Format) and DWG file formats.
This metadata persists regardless of the medium the files are stored in or the methods used to exchange them and may then be used to coordinate the actions of other technologies such as DLP and Data Retention.
