Hello guys


We're a small company, with 3 solidworks workstations. We're having some issues with the way we have been working and hopefully you could advise us.

All of the solidworks projects are in one PC folder of one of the workstations. The other 2 users work over the network. All the 3 of us are making collaborative work, its common to have the 3 working on the same project.

The major problems we are facing are:

First - Toolbox components changing configurations, depending on the user who insert it on the assembly (toolbox directory are equal in the 3 pc's, pointing to the same folder)

Second - Long saving and opening times for the 2 users working over the network


Would WPDM help us in this question?

We cant afford to spend money on a server.

We have a Nas, could we do something with this?

We dont work with revisions.

Whats the best way to do this kind of collaborative work?
