Integration with CAD Systems - Solidworks, Altium

Recommended Posts

I am interested in using Plastic SCM for revision control within our organization. I have been reading up on documentation regarding how Plastic will work but have some questions about best practices regarding binary files. What is the best way to implement Plastic SCM for users working with binary files handled by CAD tools such as Solidworks or Altium?

Plastic doesn't have specific pluginfor this tool but it will track all your changes thanks to the transparent scm feature:


Plastic SCM detects all the actions you did and displays them together so you can quickly check them in and get back to coding.

If you are working with binary files, we recommend you to follow the lock (exclusive checkout workflow) and using Gluon. This way, you will avoid conflicts with files that are not mergeable and you will keep the workflow very simple (Gluon is a very easy to use tool).


You can book a free training session with us in the following link to give you some more workflow recommendations and help you with the setup:
