    3D Via and Updating files

    Jerry Gorman

      Has anyone experienced difficulty in 3D Via Composer after updating files in SolidWorks?  I always seem to lose all my exploded components in all my 3D Via views even if I make a minor update to a component.  I am not changing file names or anything, just adding a simple extrusion seems to cause all my views to go back to it unexploded state.

          This is typically related to how your CAD software is identifying each part/assembly using something called a GUID.  Composer identifies everything by the GUID and some CAD software modify GUIDS when you make certain changes to the models (Solidworks being one of the worst offenders).  v2013X due out later this year is supposed to have some new fixes that address this though.
