Either make the configurations of the part or else you have to “Save As” in the same folder to use it in different assemblies.
Yes, the design library is basically a shortcut to files that exist somewhere on your computer. If you make changes to a part that you bring in from the design library it will be reflected in every assembly that uses that part. You can use "save as" to create a new part and leave the original part unchanged but if you have any assemblies open that contain the part they will be updated with the new name. If you have parts that you want to reuse from the library but should not be changed you can use windows to set the file to "read only". If you try to change the part you will get a message reminding you that it is read only. You can still use save as to change it to another part though.
Thank you it has started to make sense now:-) I will do a few test parts and see ho I go.
Btw, you know, when you drag new feature from the library to a work place with part in it, you have to choose reference points so the feature goes to the right point.
I got a feature with 2 ref points but the little feature pop-up would not highlight those points. Normally, they should get visible when you click on the feature. In the left selection box.
Would you be able to help with this one?
Have a great day Jeff!!!
