I am faced with needing to migrate AutoCAD files in to our vault from a group that has a well developed process for working in AutoCAD. That is, they have established drawing formats with Xref files, an extensive BLOCK library, parts lists on drawings populated from Excel spreadsheets, etc. They do not wish to switch over to working in SOLIDWORKS and considering that the majority of their files are wiring diagrams, schematics and cable drawings there is no compelling reason for them to move to SOLIDWORKS.
So, here is the question. Is there anybody out there who can provide a "roadmap" for a way to integrate their past and future ACAD files into our SW vault?
I intend to use existing workflows for the ACAD files. I am really looking for just WHAT files are needed to support their drawing formats, xRef files, etc.
