I have a team and we creating lot of drawing, my question is, what is the best way to organize all those drawings, some kind of database or?
Enterprise PDM is what we use and it works great for storing and organizing all of our drawings.
Can You give me some details?
SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM | SOLIDWORKS
Create a common folder (and subfolders if needed) in server and make sure everyone works from that folder. if a drawing is open, solidworks tells you who is using it. Solidworks PDM and Vault are designed to do that but I personally think they require a lot of unnecessary configs that could be easily and faster achieved manually. especially in Checking in and out.
If you currently use SW Pro or Premium version, WPDM is a free application that comes with it. It is not as powerful as Enterprise PDM, but it will do a decent job and be better than manual methods.
