How to make a copy of a part/assembly?

Hi,

 

I make make a simple frame (50x50) with some holes in each end.

The frame/tube is made within an assembly.

 

I now need to make a copy of the file.

The only difference between the two files will be the length of the tube, the new one need to a bit longer.

 

How can I copy the file? So I can do the adjustment in the new file/assembly.

The new assembly must not make a copy of the 50x50 tube-template.

 

I guess I need to use Design Manager, but not sure what buttons to use to make a copy of the assembly.

 

Hope one of you might be able to help me Smiley Happy

 

 

Thanks,

Hi @Kenneth

 

 

 

if - as You mentioned - there are only frames within Your assembly, then a simply "Save As" will do it.

 

 

But going to the Data Management tab will let You allow also to "Save As" and same is true for the Design Manager
