Version Overwrite – SOLIDWORKS 2017 What’s New Feature

In SOLIDWORKS PDM, each time when a user modifies or check in a file, a new version is created.

File versions are useful to view, retrieve, compare, and restore earlier versions of files using the versions tab in the local view.

A number of versions are created over a period of time even when a user check in a SOLIDWORKS file after making small corrections on the data card or modification.

Now in SOLIDWORKS PDM 2017, we have a new feature “Version Overwrite” which can allow users to retain the current file version by overwriting the existing version.
