Hello everyone.  Hope everyone is having a good day!


I was not sure what section to post this in.


I have yet another question.  We build alot of similiar units here at Paget.  I just created our first Callandria in Solidworks.  Parts, Assemblies, and drawings.


What I want to do is use what I have done for my next job and kust make the size changes needed as the next one is larger.  Is there a way to copy all the files to a new job folder and not have them reference to the one they were made for?  I know I can do a save as copy for each part, but how would that work in the assembly to keep the existing mates?  I do not thin I can just copy all teh files and post into a new folder can I?  Won't the reference's still bet there or when I open the assembly in the new job folder it will aske me where to reference parts from?


I want to make sure I am doing this right so I do not mess up any of the files for the job I just completed!


Everyone's help is always appreciated!
