New approaches to documenting parts and assemblies, such as model-based definition (MBD), can streamline communication between supply chains, but can also create more data to be managed. SolidWorks® PDM 2017 helps you get design data under control and ensure that everyone always has the right version.
New capabilities in SolidWorks PDM 2017 can:
Auto-generate 3D PDFs to support MBD
Support native third-party CAD files imported through 3D Interconnect
Add native CAD files in the check-in structure and track where they are used
Minimize clutter in the SolidWorks PDM Vault with an option to overwrite versions
Watch the video to see how you can better control any design data to improve the way your teams manage and collaborate on designs.
