I realize that this forum is a place to post questions you need help on, so most of the questions will start out negative. When I read here i get the feeling we should stay clear of Toolbox.

We are in the process of moving to managing hardwre items such as screws bolts o-rings etc. We can either make and manage all of our own items and configurations or we can customize toolbox.

The advantages of Toolbox seem to be:
SolidWorks takes care of the models, we just need to add the data.
Smart fastners with the potential of more smart functionality later
O-ring grooves, keyways etc.
Upgrades of SW should follow with upgrades of Toolbox.

Are there people who are happy with Toolbox? Are we seeing the unhappy few, but not the happy majority? Or is ita lso an unhappy majority?

Solidworks 2008 sp 4.0
SmarTeam V5R18 SP 4
