Hi All,

We will be implementing PDMWE in the nesxt 60 days and we are trying think through most of the issues before we have the softare people do the actual implementation.

so here is my first question:

we have a lot of legacy drawings (Autocad) that we will be including in our vault. we like to reuse our parts wherever we can. so it is inevitable that we will shortly make an Assembly (now in Solidworks) that will use a part that currently only exists in a DWG.

so how would you check out the dwg and check in a sldprt and slddrw? and would it keep bom structures and version/revision history?

Anyone doing anything similar?

Thanks.
