    EPDM: Advice or best practice to manage components technical spec

    Federico Boldori


      we are migrating from 2d design with autocad and a filesystem based archiving to 3d with solidworks and EPDM.


      I'm here to ask for a best practice for technical specification management.

      For example: we use in our design some cogeneration motors. These motors have the 3D model (basic one...becouse we buy them) that we use only for displacement but they come with a lot a specs, different for every orders. Is virtually impossibile to have to buy 2 motors with the same specs from our supplier.


      Now in 2D Autocad we write down on a module in autocad all the different specs. The base module have all the options and we simply delete the ones we don't need.

      I would like to implement something more reliable with solidworks EPDM... Any hint for the road to take??


      Thank you
