In context update notification

Question asked by Michael Evans on Aug 10, 2017

Hi all,


I hope someone can shed some light on this issue for me...


I have a top level assembly with multiple sub-assemblies and parts and use a lot of in context features to align holes, offset entities etc.


I now wish to move a hole in Part A which will update part B to keep my hole aligned...Great!


However, for revision control, I know that Part A has to be up-issued but is there a way of Solidworks flagging up to say that 'changing this hole affects Part B' so that I know to also up-issue that part? Admittedly, most of the time when making small changes its easy to know which parts the change will effect but occasionally, in a chain of in context features you may miss one and therefore this part does not get revised.


Thanks in advance for any advice.
