Hi Shaun, the difficulty probably comes if the local vault view on each machine is at a different location.
If the vault views are at the same location on each PC (eg C:\\EPDM-vault), then you could put the hatch pattern file into the vault, point Solidworks to that location and tell everyone else to do the same.
Hope this helps.
I have the file in a public folder already and I want to point the default SolidWorks "File Location" for hatches to that folder.
My question is... under "System Options"/"File Location" - which option is for hatch patterns? I can't figure out which file path to update.
Hi Shaun, sorry I misunderstood the question.
Unfortunately it's not possible to set the location of the hatch pattern file via System Options, File Locations
There is an open SPR for this:
881681 - Ability to customize location of hatch patterns file via System Options > File Locations
So you would need to have the same file on each machine to have everyone using the same hatch patterns.
