Without PDM, is there a good way to find all referenced documents of a file?
For example, Assem1 would have Part1, Part2, Part3, Drawing1, and Drawing2. It would also show subassemblies, etc.
In solidworks, select File, Open.
(single) Click on the file.
Click the "References" button.
It will only show you one layer down. It shows parts, but not the drawings of those parts. It shows sub-assmblies, but not the parts/assemblies included in that sub-assembly.
I'm not sure if that is exactly what you are looking for, but it is the closest thing I am aware of. .
Open the assembly and go to File > Pack and Go. Check the "Include Drawings" box and it will show the full structure underneath your assembly.
Windows Start Menu > SolidWorks Tools > Treehouse might also achieve what you're after.
You might have the option to do the Pack and Go with a right click on the file in Windows Explorer (depending on what version of SOLIDWORKS is installed and what options of that install). You would not have to open the file in SOLIDWORKS using this method.
