Does anyone know if it is possible to create a hyperlink to a specific drawing sheet either in a native SolidWorks file or an eDrawing file?
Are you talking about a SLDDRW file with multiple sheets or a bunch of seperate sheets?
I have been able to get a Balloned Assembly where the Ballons are Hyperlinked to the detail of the part being called out, but these are all seperate sheets.
I am talking about mutiple pages in a drawing. I would like to have one drawing that contains everything I need for an assembly including subassemblies and parts.
As a general rule, I discourage lots of drawing sheets. If something happens to that file, all your drawings are gone, not just one. And the more sheets you have, the slower things run. Only you can decide if the tradeoff is worth it.
I think the hyperlink idea probably should work. The only problem I've had with hyperlinks in Solidworks drawings is that it hyperlinks the entire note and not just the hyperlinked part of the text.
I used to use multiple drawing sheets for sub assembly weldment and detail drawings, including those parts associated with the sub assembly. However, I would tend to stay away from using it for asssemblies with multiple sub assemblies and parts. The more sheets you use, the slower it gets, especially if you have section views.
Though the idea is interesting, I would stay away from hyperlinking inside of SW drawings (regardless to where they point). To much changes to quickly and requires too much overhead. Do you really want a link on a drawing that requires you to load SolidWorks in order to use?
I am sorry for the confusion. I am looking to create a link outside of SolidWorks, probably in our ERP system. I would like to point that hyperlink to a specific page in a drawing. I would like have my part details located in the same drawing as my assembly, but have a link in our ERP system that goes directly to that part drawing.
As far as mutilple sheets goes and it slowing down my system, I am not concerned about that. Most of our assemblies are small (under 20 parts). By creating one drawing I can get away from re-typing the titleblock information for multiple drawings.
We use Hyperlinks to PDF files on Sharepoint to allow manufacturing access to our multipage drawings. By creating a PDF in Solidwork you can selet what sheets are in the file you'll be creating the hyperlink for.
