    Problems with missing parts in a assembly

    Rick Van Der Ven



      I recently upgraded from SW 2014 to SW 2015. and it was working fine until recently i opened some assembly's and SW told the files where missing and i had to relocate them. Thats fine if it happens ones but i haven't moved any parts so why can't SW find the files? It also happens to assembly's i just made 10 seconds ago. I close it and open it again and SW tels me the parts are missing.

      Could somebody help me with this problem?


      kind regards,

          Hi Rick,


          I'm not sure, but it looks like SW 2015 handles assemblies in a slightly different way, I had the same issue I tracked it down to having a copied toolbox part

          in the assembly, so I had two files in different sub assemblies within a top level assembly called the same thing one with all the need configuration one with out. If I opened the individual sub assemblies all was ok, because the need file was opened.

          This did not happen in 2014, this is probably a good thing as it highlights potential problems, but if that's the case some sort of warning would be nice as come across as just a missing file.

              Hi Steve,


              Well the problem is that even the small sub assembly's are missing parts when i open them. So i can't open a assembly normally without having to individually click and pick every part. So thinking about downgrading to SW'14 again until this problem has been solved by SW or if somebody has a fix for this problem.

              So if somebody has a fix or has the same problems please let my know!
