In SW there's a feature where you can create a sub assembly from parts that already exist in an assembly. this is very handy when you have fasteners. You can group fasteners and easily copy them to other assemblies.
i have a bolt with 2 washers that i want to group from one assembly and then copy to another assembly. id then like to dissolve the sub assembly so the parts are now in the top level assembly.
how do i do this in SE?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The command you need is Transfer. If you select the components in question and then click on 'Transfer' you will have the option to create a new sub-assembly.
When you want to dissolve it, you can use the transfer command again to move the parts to the assembly level you want.
If I remember correctly "dissolve" was SW's term.
@MagRiz Solid Edge has a function called System Libraries that you may want to look into. It's a formal solution for what you are talking about.
i first had to drop the pattern that the fasteners were using, which i dont understand why is necessary.
but the form new subassembly option is greyed out.
and then SE crashed..
