      Is it possible to change a part name (using "save as") and maintain the parametric association with a drawing of that Part?

      I have a client who needs specific names (numbers really) for all their parts, now, after the parts and drawings are all finished.

      Is there some way to change the part name and have the drawing know the new name. In an assembly this is just what happens. You use "save part as" and the name in the assembly is changed. How do I maintain the connection with the drawing?

      It would be very useful to have an answer to this.

      Thanks,

      Robert

      Okay. As is usual when I get around to posting on these forums, I find something useful in the larger net of forums. As a one-man shop I haven't used Solidworks Explorer before. This seems to have all the utilities to do this.
