Hello,

 

this has been driving me crazy for the past 2 days, as i just cannot break associativity on a part within an assembly. I dont want to do configurations, i just want create  assembly 1, save a copy and then open it , do some changes and save it as assembly 2, so i have 2 diffrent assemblies. I do check the 'Save a copy' option when I save the assembly (save as...) (http://blogs.solidworks.com/solidworksblog/2012/08/save-as-copy-in-solidworks.html) and i get the messege about breaking associativity, but when i open assembly 1 after i have made the change in assembly2 (and assembly 2 has been saved as a copy and than opened), assembly 1 automaticaly changes to reflect the changes I have made in assembly 2. Why does it have to be such a horror to accomplish such a simple task?

 

Please someone give me advice on how to break the associativity.
