Saving part with imported bodies without saving top level bodies.

Question asked by Ryan Schmidt on Mar 16, 2018

Hello all,

I am using Add-in cam software, and to avoid a bunch of issues relating to changes made/sketches/etc... For every programming job I create a new part then import the body of the job I am working on into that newly created part.

This allows a a live model that updates to current versions, and allows me to make changes without having any effect on the original.

The problem I have been unable to solve is:

When I save my newly created part, Solidworks wants to save the original top level imported body.

We try very hard to avoid saving parts that have not been modified for file management reasons so this causes problems.

So, Can anybody help me figure out how to save a part with an imported body, without saving the original linked imported body?


Thank you,
