I have a subweldment that I wanted to place inside another weldment everything ok with the modelling. However solidworks does not treat the inserted part as a subweldment it breaks down all the bodies and places as new cutlist items. This is even more frustrating if I then use another instance in the model.

the inserted part has properties in it that need to be pulled across and used in the cutlist - mainly description and id number.


My question is: why doesn't SW treat inserted weldments as subweldments and keep the bodies together??

or Can it without manually recreating the subweldment??


If the parts had not already been created and usd in an assembly I could have created an assembly of the parts but it's welded on not bolted.
