    rename part and file in the assembly

    Ivan Kharpalev

      We saved bodies in a multybody  part with create assembly.

      We have an assembly.

      Can we rename parts and there files names in the assembly?

      (even if we break link to masterpart, or/and if we make parts virtual as a first step).

      The main goal is to have correct file names for parts as result.


      Can we do it here in assembly? (renaming in the masterpart is another story).


      Thank you!



      thread https://forum.solidworks.com/message/317664?q=rename%20part%20and%20file%20in%20the%20a  tells about "Save to external file" command, but as I see it is applicable to newly created files (or generally virtual) I do not know how to do it this way.
