    Changing instances of parts within sub-assemblies?

    Marshall Smith

      I'm wondering if there is a way to manually change the instance of a part within a sub-assembly. I'm trying to create a larger assembly by placing several assemblies of parts with multiple configurations. However, whenever I change the configuration of a part within one of the sub-assemblies, the other instances of that part change their displayed configuration too.

       

      For example I have two lengths on conveyor, identical, each an assembly, but different instances. Each has parts with several configurations with different widths and lengths already set. If I change the configuration of the first conveyors part from config.a (5 feet) to config.b (10 feet), conveyor 2's part also changes to config b (10 feet).

       

      Is there a way to have these separate assemblies display different part configurations?

       

      Thanks,
