Maybe not the right place to ask this but hopefully someone can help.
How would you recommend controlling file names with bought in assemblies?
Take a hinge for example. We buy in a hinge which is used on a product we manufacture. This hinge is given the part number A11013 as per our company standard.
Now, when it comes to creating this in solidworks I need to create 3 parts and an assembly (with the assembly being A11013). What do I then name the other parts?
How do you guys tackle this? I imagine it's fairly common.
