I have only been using Solidworks 2012 for two weeks. I am working on an assembly and need to replace several components with a new one. I can't find an icon for replacing the parts.
Please can you help. Thanks in advance.
Colin, you have to right click on the part you want to replace in the feature tree. Look for replace component, you may have to hit the arrows at the bottom of the menu that pops up to see the replace component icon. Browse to where the new file is.
Another way to replace a component is to hit file, then about half way down is the replace icon. I have always used the above method because it fills in the part you want to replace in the top box.
Also in the top right is the search box and you can type in a command and then hit the eye glasses and it will show you where a command is located.
Welcome to the forum. It should be in the right-click drop-down menu.
If it isn't there then click on the double-arrows at the bottom of the list to show hidden commands.
