Library or Format Description for PDM

I am looking to write some tooling around Power Designer. Now I would like to read/write PDM files.

Is there any documentation about the file format or a library for reading these files?

    You need to become familiar with the API and metamodel, Andreas. There are some useful global functions you can use to create or open a model - CreateModel & OpenModel. To create or work with a PDM, you'll need to understand a fair bit more. Please get in touch via my blog ( if you want to discuss scripting options.
