After saving a drawing as detached file, I need to create a detail view, from one of the existing views.
Usually I was able to do so with no problem, but now I get this messagae: "This operation requireds the external model to be loaded".
Is there any way to solve this, since I dont have the model any more.
Try restarting SolidWorks and check. Else try this:
Add a new sheet to the drawing. Now select and drag the view from the feature manager to that sheet. Increase the scale and use that. You won't be able to crop the view so need to use the full view.
