SolidWorks Enterprise PDM (EPDM) 2013 now has an add-in for DraftSight Premium that can be downloaded from the customer portal. This add-in allows DraftSight Premium customers to work with vaulted 2D files directly from within the DraftSight environment. DraftSight Premium offers additional benefits over the free version such as telephone and email support, network licensing, access to the DraftSight API (required for the EPDM add-in), and access to the Deployment Wizard.
The add-in enables the following functions from within the DraftSight environment:

- Update title block properties
- Access to the file data card and file property information
- Get latest or previous versions of a file and Xrefs
