Solidworks 2006 question


New member
I occasionally use SWX 2006 and a customer is having trouble with a large file that I sent him. The file on my PC is an assembly of subassemblies that I made a long time ago. The assemblies are saved in three different folders. He wants me to use "pack and go" to make a zip file for him.

What is "pack and go", and is there something similar with a different name in SWX 2006?

I'm not sure if SW2006 has pack and go, I use 2010. Basically pack and go collects all the files in that model even if they are in different folders and either puts them into a new folder with all associated files or puts them into a zip file. I've used it a few times recently and it works really well.
