i have a subassembly wich is not needed but the subassemblies within are needed in the top assembly. i was able to dissolve the unwanted assembly. can i delete the model and the folder of the unwanted subassembly?
yes i can
probably, although I would recommend doing a where used search first just to be safe.
Would you mind expanding on the "Where Used" thought. I have looked for a utility that will let me find out where a part (or sub assembly) is used in higher assemblies as well as a tool that will let me find if a drawing exists for a model that does not have the same name as the model (Co. changed their numbering system a while before I arrived-major cause of hair loss). I hate to admit it, but I am using r2010.
hi bruce, you have to use solidworks explorer for that, you should use explorer to change part numbers, replace a part with another, things like that. your mates wont blow up if you use explorer.
