Hello All-


Has an Auditor ever said to you "What is this "external reference"? Why is it missing?


RE: In Context External References; How do you handle these SolidWorks issues in Vaults? Not only "missing" references, but all in context external references, like;


  • Externally referenced sketch planes on surfaces from other geometry
  • Sketches converted from other geometry
  • Part files inserted in part files


I know most of these are bad habits, but this is what I've been given.
