Our group is considering the use of file sharing in PDM for PDFs, Solidworks drawings, Solidworks parts, and Solidworks assemblies. I have seen some other forums where people do not recommend using file sharing for files that use references, and was looking for some more feedback from those that have tried it.


Our goal is to prevent duplicate file names in PDM (using permissions to prevent this) and then having a file shared from a project folder (or multiple project folders) to a master folder, so that there is only one copy in the entire database that is the same across the board.
