It is necessary to add both of these documents to one template.
As far as I see - PDM Profisional - there are no problems.
There are many examples.
Or I did not understand something?
I somewhere had a ready example - it is necessary to look.
Unfortunately now I have no time.
If it is necessary urgently - look here can be.
And a template card only for part?
Or in a template there is also a drawing card?
Possibly it so, but I by search of an example found several other references which are perhaps interesting.
Configuring EPDM to allow for a 'linked' PDF to follow it's Drawing,
at the same time there was a thought, to try to add PDF to a template of an example. what will be?
If there is a result - it is possible to try to create separate (parallel) Workflow for a part or the drawing - only for references of files - we will call it "Part-Drawing Reference".
Reference shall appear automatically after creation of files - in case of Check In and Check Out?
It is only imagination, there is no time to check. Perhaps I am mistaken, excuse.
The method you mentioned above is for file references within the PDM database not for the Drawing and Part references that are internal to the files themselves.
I agree, but then it turns out what there has to be some similar decision without use of PDM? There is something similar? Macroes or applications?
Can at the forums which aren't connected with PDM?
This kind of works out of the box, doesn't it? Just not immediately.
If you create those two files, they are both empty.
You open and edit the part and save it, then you select Open Drawing. SOLIDWORKS will automatically search for and find the drawing file that has the same name as the part file and open it.
You refresh View Palette, insert Views, and save drawing. The reference connection is now created.
When checking in the drawing, it will reference the part.
As long as they have the same file names, you should be fine.
Of course, all this so if the specified sequence of actions is observed.
But happens that there is no open detail in advance, and the drawing was open directly - in that case it is necessary to look for manually the required file and, to insert it into the drawing. Often it takes away a lot of time and in certain cases there are also problems.
I so understand this question.
Cases when for this reason such templates did not apply are known to me.
And in my opinion there is a question, but not just a habit because not always the real sequence of actions such as it is put in logic of the program.
I think that automatic insertion of a type of model when opening the file of the drawing can be some decision (both files in one directory). As far as it is real and convenient - I cannot tell.
Otherwise it is necessary to wean from habits, not to use double templates or to do everything on an algorithm (that is improbable).
I can be not right.
