I have the frequently re-occuring issue that parts that were inserted into a part file are losing their position. It seems they jump to a random position when doing a rebuild. Is anyone experiencing the same or does even have a solution for that?
how do you insert the parts into that part? Are there external references? Do you have an example part or even a video showing the behavior?
Here is a video: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Atk8fkOplPa7goMXkvzEvlG6wjjmNQ
As you see, the part jumps out of position if I go back in the tree. But the same behavior also happens seemingly spontaneously. If I re-do the feature , it goes back to the correct position. Also very strange is that I copied the bocy of this inserted part, and this copied body is visible while editing the insert part feature further up the tree (around 37 seconds into the video).
PS I am working on SW 2018, SP3
It says that the file is not available to me or that it has been moved.
Seems something went wrong then. I put it on YouTube: Solidworks - What is Happening Here? - YouTube
I've seen similar issues before with the option "Locate part with Move/Copy feature" checked. Try to uncheck that and locate the inserted body only by explicitely inserting that Move/Copy manually.
Thanks, I will try that! It is driving me crazy.
It is a long time since discussing this issue, but it keeps re-occuring, even if doing the move/copy feature seperately (which also comes with the issue that sketches and planes do not follow). It is particularly often happening if there are several configurations of the part. After switching between configurations, the inserted part will jump out of position. It seems like the move/copy feature is much further down the tree than displayed.
