I would suggest that you go back to your original assembly model
and create another config suppressing the components you don't want shown.
Then in the drawing simplay RC on the view and select properties, then when the
dialog comes up select the other config.
This is normally what I would do, however, I needed a separate model. Is there no way of changing the referenced model in the view manually? Or is it simply easier to just re-import the model again?
When you open up the drawing before you select "OK" there is a reference button
that is supposed to allow you to select a different model. Personally speraking I have never had
success doing this method.
Another method would be to bring in your second model into this drawing placing a dummy view.
Then RC on the existing view and select this second model.
Either way you might just end up recreating this drawing from scratch.
This system is not fool proof.
When I need to change the referenced model in a SW drawing file, there are two work arounds that I use:
1) I open SW Explorer and get it to show the referenced file and do a "Replace".
2) Rename the model file the drawing does reference to something else to be changed back later, open the drawing file and when it tells you that it cannot find the referenced model file and would I like to find it myself. I locate the file I actually want the drawing file to reference and tell SW to open it with that one.
Thanks.... The method you suggested works for me.
If you want all views to reference the new part, the easiest way would be useing the Replace command in SW Explorer. If you only want one view of the drawing to reference the new part, while other views reference the original, you'll just have to remake the view.
