I am a bit new to the wPDM paradigm so please excuse me if this is a dumb question (I did some searching, but couldn't find the answer).
My company has always worked with all of our files on a network location, and without official revision control. Some of our larger assemblies are really slow, so I was thinking about turning to wPDM so I can bring the files onto local storage (SSD, baby!) to speed up things. What I haven't been able to figure out is how can I organize my local folders.
For example, let's say I have a box with a heatsink in it and the top level assembly is a chassis.
In a simplified way, I would probably store the files on the network like this:
N:\Chassis\Project A\Chassis Top.sldprt
N:\Chassis\Project A\Chassis Bottom.sldprt
When I set up wPDM, my insticts would be to create projects and sub projects that looked similar to the network drive folders.
My issue stems from when I check out the files locally, they all get dumped into a single folder. If I was working on a lot of large assemblies, it would be a bear to find anything in that one folder.
Is there a way to have wPDM checkout files to local folders similar (or the same) to their organization in the vault?
Basically, I want wPDM to do the same thing Pack and Go does when you have Flatten to single folder turned off.
Thanks in advanced for any help!
