PDMRebuild can be part of a TaskActions task chain.

This is not the same rebuild mode as in the right-click tool. In TaskActions the PDMRebuild tool allows rebuilding SOLIDWORKS documents that change state. It does not take into account the parents of the documents that change state.

In the case of non-SOLIDWORKS files, the reference links are recreated as built in the last version.


We can define the extensions of the files to rebuild


  • SOLIDWORKS reconstruction type :
    • Forcing reconstruction : rebuilds all functions of the active configuration
    • Rebuild from all configurations: rbuilds the modified functions in all configurations.
    • Force rebuild of all configurations: rbuilds all functions in all configurations.

  • Extract dependencies: allows to record dependencies when rebuilding an assembly or a drawing
