I have a part file in which I created a number of custom-named views.
I then inserted that model into an assembly.
Is it possible to carry my custom-named views from the part file into the assembly?
Hi Michael, is it that you want to access a orientation of your part in the assembly? Or do you wish to apply the same orientation to the assembly?
If it's the latter, you can save Views within SolidWorks, which you can access anywhere.
See the screenshots below:

In the assembly
So once I save a view to SolidWorks, I can access it across all documents.
Hope this helps
I understand what you're saying, but these custom-named views are unique to features only in the one model.
I would never need these saved views for any other application.
I was hoping these custom part views could be accessed from within an assembly.
What is your end need with accessing the custom part views within an assembly
My part has numerous holes at different compound angles.
I created custom views square to the axis of each of these holes.
Within my assembly, I wanted to view it using those same custom views.
Kind of just wanted to see through each hole and see what lies in its path.
I just thought since I created the views in the model, could I use them in the assembly without recreating them.

Yes you could use them (and that is what Prasad Bhonsule has shown) but would depend on which version of SW you're using since this was started with 2014 (AFAIR)
