We have 10 drafters that are using Solidworks 3D modeling software. We are having major speed issues with them opening large drawings over the network.

What is the best method to get them segmented away from the main LAN? We are running CAT5e to their workstations soon. Should we put them on a different switch and SAN device?

Are there other options I can research?

Are they 64-bit computers with lots of RAM and Good video Cards?  W7 or XP?
Network slowdown may be the issue, but I would suspect underpowered computers first.  Plus computers loaded up with junk and temp files.
