Component Replacement

Creator
Creator

I have an assembly with about 25 parts in it (so a smaller assembly).

 

I am replacing parts in the assembly. For instance one of the parts that I am replacing is a part that became a subassembly.

 

Is there a way when I replace these parts that during the replacement that I can remap the constraints so the constraints don't fail?

Is there a way to map the features that are used for constraints to features on the new part?

Hi @NOberly,

I can give you three answers.

  1. NO
  2. YES, but you need to add a specific name for all entities used in the component to constrain before the replace command. The sub-assembly that will replace the part, need to have the same name for the all entities that will used for replacing. Experience had...part versus sub-assembly doesn't work.
  3. Add an ER....sure Ben from Siemens has some ER opened for this situation.
Thank you...
