Is there a way to stop PDM from logging into the vault until it’s called on i.e., PDM folder selected, SolidWorks launched, etc. on our mobile workstations?   Our Archive Server Default Settings are set as Login > Windows Login > Automatic Login (Domain/Group). Our PDM Client settings are set to Use Server Default.   When the laptop is… (Show more)

I'm more curious on how the workflow and set up of parts/assemblies/drawings are delegated between teams of co-workers when working on a project.  How big is your team? How many parts are in your assembly? Does one person handle that part/assembly/drawing throughout the life of the whole project? If more than one person touches that file can… (Show more)

some of my users are reporting that when the pdm server is experiencing heavy loads (large quantities of files being checked in) they are experiencing slow response from solidworks on their local computers. it was my understanding that when a file was opened from pdm you were accessing a local copy and that you only interacted with pdm when… (Show more)

Hi All. We are about to start using PDM in our Engineering department after years of contemplation and procrastination. I'm trying to plan out how we will handle the various flat flex cables (similar to ribbon cable) that we use in our products. We have a part number for each cable which we procure separate from our boards. I want to represent… (Show more)

Has anyone used, looked at, heard of, Bluestar PLM, BluestarPLM.com? Couldn't find anything on line as to how well it handled Solidworks files?

Does anybody know how to make a desk top icon of the search window?  We have some employees in the warehouse that need to look at released pdf files and it would be easier for them to just select an icon and it would automatically open the search window.  I remember doing this a few years back for someone but don't remember how it was done.   … (Show more)
