What is a .CEX file?

The file extension .CEX is associated with a SolidWorks Enterprise PDM Vault Export File. This type of file is created by SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, which is a software application designed for organizations to manage and store their product-related data efficiently. The .CEX file contains the configuration settings of a vault. A vault in this context is a secure, centralized location where all the product data of an organization is stored. These settings are crucial as they define how the vault operates and manages the data.

The .CEX file is particularly useful because it allows these settings to be easily transferred and implemented in a different vault, possibly in another location or within a different project. This feature is beneficial for organizations that need to maintain consistent vault settings across multiple projects or sites.

To open or work with a .CEX file, you would use the Administration Tool that comes with the SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software. This tool is part of the Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Enterprise PDM package, and it specifically handles the exporting and importing of these vault settings through the .CEX files. This ensures that users can manage their vault configurations effectively within the SolidWorks Enterprise PDM system.
