We've been told toolbox doesn't work with Enterprise. Is this true? What do we do with the hundreds of toolbox parts in our work group vault?
I would be surprised to hear that. Who told you this?
Configuring Toolbox in Enterprise PDM and SOLIDWORKS
Our IT guy said we will have to start using weldments because toolbox doesn't work with enterprise. I thought that was not possible. But, I hadn't researched it yet. Sounds unlikely. Thanks for the link. I'll give it to the people handling this in our meeting today.
I assume you are referring to Solidworks Enterprise PDM? We use the toolbox here and store the files in the vault. We had our VAR help us set it up, if I remember right you have to store the database in the vault.
Yes I mean Solidworks Enterprise PDM. It just sounded strange to me that you couldn't use a SolidWorks feature (toolbox) with a SolidWorks feature (Solidworks Enterprise PDM). I will have to find out more why they think this isn't possible.
One thing that I found funny when going to EPDM is that you can not use the standard revision table on your drawings. From what we were told you have to use a general table and set it up to look like the revision table. It was a little weird to me but we were able to make it work. Just seems like a feature they would include to me.
Thanks, I'll keep an eye on that. What happened to old drawings that already had the standard revision table? We're going from Solidworks PDM Workgroup to Solidworks Enterprise PDM.
When we imported all of our drawings we put them in a migration state so that if we need to revise the drawing we have to push it through a workflow and update the title block. They are okay to be in the vault and can still be used on the shop floor but are not controlled by the EPDM variables.
