    SolidWorks search order for references when opening parts and assemblies

    Brian Hoerner

      Currently using SW2014, although this is for any version really.

       

      When you open a SolidWorks part or Assembly, there is an order of search it goes through to find references to parts.  So, if an assembly is opened, it looks for the last location that parts related to that assembly were found, then if not it searches current folder, sub folders, the whole internet world etc...

       

      I used to have a document that described all of that but am unable to locate a good reference, and I have a detailed user I would like to show a visual more than just explain it.

       

      any ideas?  Maybe I am just missing where it is on the helps etc

       

      Thanks much,

      Brian
