CamWorks Data Management

Hello everyone,

My company recently purchased Workgroup PDM and I am getting everything setup for everyone to use.  Recently, I discovered there might be an issue with Manufacturing controlling their CamWorks Data in PDM and was wondering if anyone had any insight.


The problem:

CamWorks stores the path data in the SolidWorks Part file.  This greatly increases the file size of each part and, thus, assembly and drawing.  This is not a big deal with small assemblies, but for large assemblies it can be cumbersome.


Does anyone know of a way to handle this? Or a work around?  If not, does anyone know if Enterprise PDM has a way of managing this? For other reasons, we may be switching over to Enterprise soon.
