I have a problem in assembly that I have seen many times. I have a linked body in a component. When I edit something in this component the linked body inside the component does not update. I must edit the link manually and deselect the original body and select it again to update the link.
I attached a movie to show you the problem. in the active component I have a link to hollow box which is not updated. I just edit the link and deselected the hollow box solid body and select it again to update it.
Updating the links manually takes time and I am always worried about links which may be not update.
I am sure all components are fully loaded (not partially) and my links are associative.
Solved! Go to Solution.
But it was already off.
I didn't know this option and had never changed it before. It was in its default status.
With this option on, then your parts should update when loaded... not always a desired behaviour...
In general for WAVE workflows,
1. Load Interpart Data ON
2. Delay Interpart Update ON
In this way you can control when your parts update rather than just having it happen at load
Strange, you say that you have been working in both parts - the wave link source part and the target part. This means that your parts should be fully loaded. Is your link going drirect from source to target or via another part? This would then be solved by having all parts contributing fully loaded. You can do that as a pre setting or while in the session use:
