I have been teaching myself to take advantage of using global variables linked to external txt files for multiple parts. This is a very powerful tool for my personal projects and I would like to explore carrying this convention into my work environment, but that's where things get really complicated. My colleagues seem quite turned off by the idea and think that it's just going to become more hassle than it's worth. So, I would like to see if there are established conventions, best practice procedures, etc. essentially more in depth learning on how to best implement, streamline, and establish 'best practices' for using externally linked global variables across Solidworks/EPDM?
Thanks for your time!
