?

  • For transfer RAL creates a .pdf of the drawing and a step file of the part or assembly
  • STEP file then has to be transferred into a SolidWorks part or assembly, checked in most if not all cases a cleaning process has to be performed
  • If the part is associated with an assembly, especially the suspension these parts then have to now be updated in the SW assembly.
  • During all of this the drawing is inaccessible!
  • All has to start again if something goes wrong or changes.
  • Red-lines can help but more often than not workshops want the CAD file to (cheaper). Starts becoming a headache to maintain.
  • Request for change to drawing / modification to part have to go back to RAL.
  • For transfer / modifying / creating a part a SolidWorks user loads it into the vault. The associated sub-assemblies and assemblies are automatically updated.
  • Drawing is always linked to the part available and with correct permissions both can be modified.
