Is there a limit to the filename length within SolidWorks EPDM? Thanks.
Hi Ananth, the only limit is to the folder path, which is set at 256 characters by Windows. The folder path for a file includes what folder it is in, as well as its file name and extension
For example if your vault view is located at the root of the C drive, and your vault is called PDM; if you then add a file at the root of the vault called Part1.SLDPRT, then the total folder path for that file is C:\PDM\Part1.SLDPRT which is a total of 19 characters.
So the more subfolders etc you have in your vault, the longer your folder path becomes. Also a good tip is NOT to keep your vault view on your desktop, but at the root (or as close to the root) of a drive as possible. If you place a vault view on your desktop, then even before you add any files, your folder path is already something like C:\Users\<username>Desktop
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks Prasad for the clarification.
