PDM solutions for Solidworks..


New member
Does anybody know of an alternative to EPDM for Solidworks?

Not sure if it is the best and only route to go down but we are getting pushed in that direction.. I was hoping others have had a good experience with similar PDM systems we can draw a comparison from?

Multi CAD and Workflow capabilities a must…

Hi Mechview,

We use a program called DDM from a company called CSI in Newbury.

If you trawl their website you will find this link to a solidworks integration video, I have stuck it here for you
DDM : SolidWorks Assembly Configurations

They are really worth a good look as they provide better functionality than Enterprise PDM but at less cost!

Good luck
