Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone else out there has come across keeping the reference of a part that is inserted into another part while using windchill?


The problem is that when we have a part that is inserted into a part we can't get solidworks to keep the reference between the two once checked in to windchill.

We did discover that it will hold the reference only on the computer that the change was made on. Example: computer 1 makes a change and checks both models B, which is inserted into A, into windchill. When computer 2 opens model A from windchill computer 2 pulls last know location of model B. We have also tried adding model B to workspace prior to opening model A and we get the same results. We have also tried re-inserting model B in to model A while working in the windchill workspace on computer 1 when computer 2 tries to open it we get the same results.


The reason we use part inserted into part is for our castings and raw material components maybe there is a better way that will work for us and windchill.

I would love to hear everybody's ideas and thoughts.





Hopefully it makes sense
