Has anyone else had this problem?
Try to use original SW template, I found some strange behavior of SW when I use my old part template while import xt assembly.
I was actually modifying an old project from last year. (we updated to solid-works 2018).
this is the first time i came across this issue.
I went back to my ASSY which reflected the change on the Part, tried to save the ASSY but it didn't work. but when i saved the drawing i was able to save the Part and ASSY. (using the save all option)
Do you get the same results if you do Insert --> Features --> Save Bodies?
update the master part file?
save after every step...
report to var if problem prosiest
I get a similar error message.
In my case I have a multi-body part. Each body is inserted in to a new part.
First time I saw this issue I tried to break all references with the original part. This caused all the trouble. The solution was to keep the links between the master-model and the external parts (created from bodies).
To re-cover the work I had to re-load from PDM an earlier version of the master-model (with all the links between the parts) and start again. Unfortunately now I'm getting errors again when I try to do modifications on the master-model. The links between files exist but I can't save the master-model anymore.
Since the parts are all in a separate assembly (except the master-model) at least I get the option to save all the changes in the assembly... not ideal but I managed to continue working until I find a better solution...
Just feels like I should never used this 'Insert into new part...' feature. Very weak feature!
