I'm Chris. New to the forum, but not new to Solidworks. I wouldn't say that I'm an expert, but I feel that I'm a solid intermediate user. I've searched for the answer quite a bit online and in person, but haven't found an answer. Maybe I'm using the wrong terminology, but here's where I'm stuck:
So, I made a car (in this case, I made a real quick, simple car to help clearly illustrate my point as I can't share my original files) in a multi-part file. Not much; a body, 4 wheels and a bumper. I right-clicked on the desired parts (the wheels) and opted to insert them into a new part. In this new part, I created a truck. I can see that the files are linked. Change the wheel sizes on my car and they change on the truck. Which is exactly what I want. But now, I want to use the same bumper from the car. How do I add this to my truck file?
I can insert it into a new part, but can't seem to find out how to put it into my truck file.
Here is a screen capture of my car file showing the multiple solid bodies:
Here's my truck, using the wheels from the car:
And the solid bodies from the car are shown to be there:
How would I go about adding the red bumper from the car to my truck's file?
Thank you in advance for your help, and my apologies if I wasn't using the proper terms (and please let me know what they are) to clearly search for the answers I was looking for.
