I have an assembly. There are two different virtual parts in it, say A and B. Now I want to replace part B with A as both are virtual and do not show in Replace dialog box.
I can see the replace component option for a virtual part but to replace it you need a part saved externally. So save the other part externally (i.e part B), replace the part A with B and then convert part B to virtual again.
Thanks for the reply. I had already done that but shouldn't there be an easier way?
Delete Part B
Hold Ctrl and drag Part A to Part B location
Add mates to suit
Why is that a joke?
That is what Replace Components does?
