I'm planning on switching to SolidWorks soon, and I'm putting some thought into how I'll set up my drawings.
In my current system, all drawings are together in one file (Mechanical Desktop). This was by default--it's the way it works in MDT.
I think that the easiest thing to do in SW would be to use multiple sheet drawings, simply because it keeps all drawings in one neat package, and printing/page numbering is effortless.
I do however realize the benefits of single sheet drawing files (each part gets its own drawing file)... file size, performance, no corruption issues, and a better tie in to PDM/ERP programs. There's probably others. But, how then do you manage something as simple as page numbering? Or printing... how do you print a drawing set in the correct page order?
My drawings usually range from three to sixty pages, with twenty being about average. Some have been as large as one hundred pages. Typically they're one part per page.
So, I'm hoping that some (many) of you will have some input into this... experience with this sort of thing & how you handle it. If I could simplify page numbering & printing, I think I'd be good to go with the single sheets.
Thanks in advance for your help....
