Enterprise PDM and Toolbox Integration

Enterprise PDM can now manage SolidWorks Toolbox part files and the Toolbox database entirely in an Enterprise PDM vault. Users point SolidWorks to the Toolbox vault folder and use Toolbox as before. Enterprise PDM automatically:
  • Checks Toolbox parts out and in as needed so the latest versions are used
  • Adds missing Toolbox parts to the vault
  • Redirects assembly references to Toolbox parts in the vault
  • Replicates the Toolbox files and database (if replication servers are configured)
Enterprise PDM still supports the SolidWorks pre-2010 Toolbox integration, where the master Toolbox library is outside the vault and Enterprise PDM creates copies in the vault as parts are used. If you have SolidWorks 2010, the new integration is recommended.
