We use both Solidworks and Pro/engineer and have been moving Solidworks projects into PDMLink using the Workgroup Manager for Solidworks.
We currently have our start parts and drawing formats in PDMLink for Pro/E and through a config line we can point to PDMLink for those files. The idea is when you create a part, it will pull the template start part from PDMLink. I'd like to do the same thing with Solidworks. I opened a ticket with PTC and the response was to put the file outside of PDMLink. That was the proposed work around - we'll set up all the users preference to point to a location on their C drive and put the files on each machine (automatically pushed, not manually done).
Just wondering if anyone else has done this or if anyone uses both Pro/E and SW inside PDMLink. I figure we can't be the first ones to run into this. PTC did say that they are looking into allowing access into PDMLink through the file system, but it currently doesn't exist. That is basically what I was trying to do.
