I would want to export a Solidworks file in Teamcenter to a IGES/PDF file. How do I interact to SoloidWorks through Teamcenter for the same?
[UPDATE] - I found this thread where a user had the same problem: https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Teamcenter-Administrators-Forum/STEP-conversion-from...
But the link in the solution is broken. VS22171 - JT Bi-Directional Translator for STEP
Can somebody help me find some details around this?

I use TC Workflow along with some custom scripting to export CAD data (including Solidworks) to the OS and run the converter of your choice on them.
I also take advantage of SWIM to always create a PDF of every SW drawing at every save which is also exported as part of a release Workflow.
