So we've finally completed the a fairly large tool assembly and before we release, it's been decided that we should re-name our models to be more logical. Short of pulling up parts, and doing a file save as - is there an easier way to accomplish this?
Thanks for the help.
Menu > Assemblies > Cloning > Edit Existing Assembly. Here's a quick video showing how this is accomplished:
The video shows parts being selected one at a time - you can select multiple components.
Note: It's always a good idea to backup your data before these kind of clone operations.
Although Ben has already summed it up i would like to refer to an old post you might find worth trying.
One of my colleagues have created a macro file where you can do modifications in a spreadsheet for renaming the parts of the assembly (complete details are covered in the attachment with the referenced thread).
Do try it and let us know.
