If you use SOLIDWORKS 2015, you may have noticed a glitch during save operations and the corruption of your saved files. This error is due to an incompatibility with any service pack older than SP2.1 which can affect your files at random. Good news: It can be fixed with a quick service pack update.

Renaming SolidWorks documents… Oh what fun that can be! Without a PDM system in place renaming SolidWorks parts, assemblies and drawings is a nightmare for most people due to the nature of how SolidWorks handles references. If you are not familiar with how SolidWorks handles references; through document name/path and an internal ID assigned to each document; you can find yourself spending hours manually fixing references in your documents.
