Copy layer definitions to other (existing) part

Creator

I'm updating some parts in an assembly and want all of them to have the same layer categories. 

Is it possible to copy the layer definitions (category names, layer number) of one part to another, existing part?

Hi @ErikN,

There is no OOTB option for it but by using a workaround it can be done.

 

Create a blank part with required layer categories/definitions etc.

Import this part into the destiantion part where layer information is required. While importing make sure to turn off the options Create Named Group, Import Views and Cameras, Import CAM objects in the import part dialog.

Or you can write a journal to do it
