DropBox & SolidWorks

Last Updated on by DesignPoint Team


The above image displays my DropBox Location showing my SolidWorks template files. This is shared across my 2 PCs, smart phone, 2 remote engineer contractors I work with, and another employee. This guarantees we are working off the same templates no matter where we are.

You can also use it to store your design files, but just be cautious of your companies IP policies due to the lack of “iron clad” security of these files. These files could be accessed by unauthorized users in case of a security breach. There is also no “check-in / checkout” functionality in Dropbox, so avoid simultaneous users accessing the same file.
