We have some part families created, which are various types of spacers. I'd like to make these quickly swappable, ie select the spacer, and right click edit, and go from 1/8" to 1/4", etc. If I put these part families in the reuse library, we should be able to do this, correct? Provided the component is added via the reuse library.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I don't think it even needs to be in the reuse library to get what you want. If the spacer component is in a part family, you should be able to right-click -> replace component -> OK and select a new family member.
As things are, if I select the spacer, right click, replace component, I go to the standard replace component dialog. I was hoping, or expecting, it would go straight to the part family list at that point. I recall reuse library hardware, as well as the John Baker hardware part families being that way.
Select the part family as the replacement (it is probably already selected) and press OK. The part family dialog should show up after you press OK.
