I just started working for a company and people here used to use autocad and now are moving to solidworks professional (premium is just too expensive). We do mostly tubing, pipe connectors and assembling. There is a whole set of parts from one of the supplier which is available in 3d but only as step file. I want to make life easy for me and add all these parts and make a tool box of it with their part numbers, serial numbers and description. Has someone done something like this already. Please advice how to move forward.
