Today, we’re going to be diving into a SOLIDWORKS 2018 new enhancement on a widely used SOLIDWORKS feature – Pack and Go! We’ll see how we now have an option to ‘Include suppressed components’ in our Pack and Go in 2018!
First off, what is Pack and Go?
Pack and Go, if you’ve never used it, is a lifesaving feature! It allows you to gather all the referenced files for your drawings or assemblies, and either add them to a specified folder or add them to a zip file!
This is useful for a variety of different situations – some of which are, but not limited to:
- Creating copies of whole assemblies, including referenced parts, while being able to append a prefix or suffix to the new files
- Sending drawings and assemblies to a vendor or customer, ensuring we grab all the files necessary for vendor or customer to open them!
