Replacing components in Assembly

Experimenter

Hey Superstars

 

I have an assembly file which houses 20 sub-assembly parts. Now, I want to replace only  15 sub-component parts without changing the main assembly file. I don't wish to do it one by one. Is there an efficient way of doing the replacement.

 

 Thanks

Clone Assembly has the chance to clone, retain and replace in its exceptions.

 

I guess you could use exception in order to replace subasseblies you want. I believe,It wont let you keep main assembly (retain, becaise, in fact is not the same) so you will have to give it a new, name, and once clone is done, and subassemblies are replaced, I would do a "save-as" to my main assembly, and name it as original.

 

hope it helps.

Under cloning use "Edit Assembly".
You can pick which sub-assemblies to replace.
