Adding Watermark/Stamp to PDF using iCS Rendition - Is it possible?

Hello Bentley - 

Is there a way to add a watermark or stamp with some drawing-related information (e.g. work order, project name, company name, etc.) to a PDF when passing a DGN, DWG or PDF through the iCS Rendition (Orchestration Framework)? Currently, we utilize a rendition profile and components to convert a DGN/DWG into a PDF but we're looking to add a working stamp to certain files for finalization of project documents.

  • Yes. The most common technique relies on existing text in the DGN/DWG (often in a title block) that is substituted at print time. This is accomplished via an InterPlot settings file (specified in the rendition profile presentation component) in conjunction with a design script. ProjectWise document/environment attributes and project properties are available as values that can be used by the 'characters' design script assignment keyword for text substitution. See communities.bentley.com/.../8472.environment-variables-set-by-rendition-service-for-character-substitution

    Another technique is to place the watermark/stamp on a particular level. The level can be turned on unconditionally in the settings file, then turned off selectively in the design script based on ProjectWise attributes, workflow state, etc. using the same RENDSVC_ environment variables described in the link above.
