Linking Part Files

Question asked by Benjamin Herman on Nov 18, 2016

I am trying to set up a system that links related files in Solidworks.


I have a body. This body is first produced as a casting. This casting is then machined down. This same casting is machined down to 4 different sizes. If there is a change in the original casting, I would want the machined bodies to reflect this change as well.


Has anyone encountered a problem similar to this one? Are there ways to link all of these files together? Would it be best to have all of the parts as different configurations within the same file?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
