Design library Content when using the vault

Question asked by Gary Hamm on Aug 31, 2017

Goal: Setup a design library of commonly used parts for all engineering to access in our machine assemblies within the vault.



1. I set up a folder location SolidworksLibraryFeatures\Library of standard parts.

2, I mapped to that location via Tools-Options-File locations

3. When I am in a part file and click on add file to Library "it **copies** the file to the above path and the file can not be checked in as it is now not a unique name and a duplicate file"

4. I do not want to move the file from its current Production folder location within the vault.


So question is what is the best way to setup a commonly used library of production part files within the vault so all of engineering can access the library and find the files readily.
