SolidWorks EPDM AutoCad add-in

I have a number of AutoCAD drawings that will be migrated into our EPDM vault.  I know we can do this, no problem.  I do have a few questions though that I hope one of you who has AutoCAD files in your vault can help with:


  1. Where did you place the AutoCAD drawing formats?
  2. How do you handle AutoCAD xRef files?
  3. Did you create an AutoCAD Block repository?
  4. Do you use the EPDM AutoCAD Add-In  in SolidWorks?
    • If you do, does SW need to be re-installed to activate it?
  5. Lastly, if you are using the EPDM Add-IN in AutoCAD, do you think the effort to install and maintain it is worth it?

Thanks for any insights!
