i have a rather large assembly and i am looking to extract some parts from it by window selection and then want to save then to an external assembly so i can perform FEA w/o having to build an assy from scratch
i cannot understand why SW does not allow one to create a subassy from windowed selections or am i missing something?
ways i am familiar to do this...
1. pick the individual parts and then insert a subassy into the existing document then save that externally and exit w/o save. PITA!
2. copy the assy and delete the uneeded components. do not like this method due to references etc.
3. creat a configuration in the large assy that only show the components desire. too much overhead with this method.
there has to be a better way.
thanks in advance,
