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.
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.
