I hate to admit it but I was doing some work with Solid Edge on my laptop the other day and I couldn’t find the model I needed to modify.
I looked at my hard drive. The area where I store my data was 101GB in size containing 4,806 folders and 37,279 files.
It took me over 30 minutes to find the right file, using Windows search and opening and closing files in Solid Edge.
… and actually that’s extremely embarrassing.
You see we have been supporting and educating Solid Edge users since the product was first released in 1996 and I’ve lost count of the number of times we have emphasised the importance of structuring your data and avoiding duplicate files.
I need to practise what I preach but it’s difficult if you don’t have access to Insight or Teamcenter.
Anyway this got me thinking.
All the Solid Edge users out there must have some ideas for managing Solid Edge files.
So please help me with your best tip. I’d also be interested to know if there is anything that could help you with your management of Solid Edge data.
Here’s the details:
By way of a thank you we will provide you with a complimentary gift.
Not sure what this will be yet but it will be useful for everyone who uses Solid Edge.
