I am trying to adopt the master modelling technique with Solidworks, however being from an Inventor background I am struggling to understand certain ways that Solidworks behaves.
I have inserted the master model into a new part and used the Delete Bodies feature to leave the body required. I have then converted this into sheet metal (the part in the master file seems to have already been created as a sheet metal part however) and then added various other features like cuts/extrudes. My question is, why does the solid body still remain visible....? Its like the converted sheet metal part has been copied and placed over the top? Also, if I roll back the master file and then roll forward again it seems to mess up all the delete bodies on other derived parts and I have to go back through and edit them all again which I find quite annoying. Can anyone explain what I'm doing wrong and why this is happening? Many thanks!
