Life happens, and we are not always able to work at the office. Sometimes we have business trips, or we need to take our work home. Whether that is due to a project you need extra time on, or a worldwide pandemic with a stay at home order, in these situations, you might benefit from using SOLIDWORKS PDM in offline mode. If you have access to the server through a VPN, but the connection is tenuous or tedious, working offline with SOLIDWORKS PDM is a solution for that situation.
