    pack and go with design binder

    Liam Mooney

      Is there a way to pack and go an assembly and create a copy of the design binder with it?

      When I pack and go an assembly, and go to the new file location, the assembly does have the design binder in it, but the files in the design binder refer to the same previous location, which seems to mean if I edit the original file (excel spreadsheet) all pack and go assemblies are affected.

       

      My goal is to carry a spreadsheet with an assembly every time I pack and go, so if there is another method of doing that besides design binder, that would work too

       

      Thank you!

          Found the answer!

           

          For some reason, doing a pack and go from file explorer or solidworks explorer gives you different options when doing pack and go from inside solidworks.

          Below image is pack and go from inside solidworks and automatically included the design binder and folders. Even allows renaming the spreadsheet!

           

          Below image is pack and go from file explorer and does not include the spreadsheet.

           

           

          I don't know why these are different, and frankly it's an extra step to open an assembly just to pack and go, but this does work.
