I have a windows folder contain number of SolidWorks sub assemblies. I need to delete one of them.
Is there any way to delete once the sub assembly and all part files related that sub assembly .
The only safe way I know of would be to open all of the assemblies (and sub-assemblies) in the folder that you don't want to delete. Then select all files in the folder and try to Delete them. You'll get the error message shown below. Check the box for "Do this for all current items" and then click on "Skip". That will delete everything except the open assemblies and their parts.
Just to be on the safe side I might copy the folder to another location first in case something goes wrong. You can always delete it later.
In the feature tree Right Click the Sub-Assembly and select "Dissolve Subassembly"
I don't think this is what he is asking for.
I belive he is after deleting physical files from folder that are part of the sub-assy
Yeah - I think I would still dissolve the subassembly first just to make sure nothing is related and then delete individual components
I agree with Glenn Schroeder
Thanks all of you.
My requirement is as explain by Wojciech.
Glenn has given creative answer. Yes it worked.
I'm glad I could help. And I wish I could take credit for it, but I saw Deepak suggest that to someone here a few years ago and I happened to remember it.
Thanks for bringing that Glenn, I'm still using this old school method
