I want to check out top level assemblies from the vault to change them only. I take ownership of only the assemblies I want to change and leave all the parts read-only. When I save the assembly, Solidworks wants to save all of the files, (part and sub-assemblies).

To get information (such as BOM data) from Solidworks PCB to Solidworks PDM, would I need a connector between Solidworks and Solidworks PCB? Or can I go directly from Solidworks PCB to Solidworks PDM? Thanks.

I have set up convert task while releasing my drawing files. For one drawing file it takes one minute to convert file to PDF, if I have to release batch of files then how can I speed up the task execution? Are you using the exact same task?

Our electrical engineers use Siemens TIA Portal. When they create their programming it creates a folder structure that has several files with different extensions among the folders. The files this program creates are always the same. Our vault does not allow same named files but if we change the name of their files to be unique their program doesn't recognize them.

Can you keep a folder card property from propagating to file cards underneath it? I would like the columns to show a "Description" for both files and folders, but I do not want the files to have the same description as the folder they are in. The only thing I have been able to come up with is creating a new variable and linking a new column to that variable, but I would prefer not to do that.

I've been trying to link the part number of an assembly to the part numbers of the two parts in the assembly (Pn:Assem = PN:Part1+PN:Part2). The issue I have is each part has multiple configurations which each have their own part numbers. I want to be able to change the part configuration in the assembly and have the assemblies part number change the with changing part configuration.

I am having issues understanding the Vault View being a cached directory. So if I develop in a directory, all my work is duplicated in the vault. Won't the vault just fill up with erroneous files during development? In Workgoup PDM, we would check in only new files or revisions.

After a new solidworks install the user is getting the following error when using the PDM add-in. Has anyone else encountered this error and is there a solution for it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why do I have to uncheck all of the boxes when I am releasing a file into production if that file is part of a larger set of files? If the file uses an excel file that has multiple configurations it wants to unrelease or release all at once. Why can't I opt in (checking) the ones I want instead of opting out (unchecking) the ones I don't want? The way it is now is very time consuming and it you don't uncheck all of the boxes the files get released.

I'm trying to use the new 3D pdf - MBD format in the PDM Convert task, and it's successfully creating a 3D pdf, but it's not using the template I specify (or any template at all). I started trying to get it to use our custom templates, then backtracked to the default ones - neither works. I've tried putting them in the vault (cached on the computer running the task) and also on the local computer running the task. I did modify the script per the instructionshereto enable the 3D pdf generation.

Why the PDM asks if I would like to check out the file which is checked out by me? The only thing I can think of is that maybe you checked it out on a different computer. A check out is specific to a user and a computer.
