I am new to Solid Edge and I am having some trouble trying to insert an assembly into another assembly
when I click on the insert component and select the assembly I want to insert, nothing appears in the screen
I am also getting a message that " No Top Level Part Selected"
How do I overcome this problem
Solved! Go to Solution.
With the Insert Component command it looks like you need to double click on the part.
That said, I have no idea how this command is supposed to work as I have never used it. I simply go to the library tab in the pathfinder, select the part or assembly I want, and drag it into the screen. The Insert Component command seems like a wasted step to me, but perhaps I am missing something.
Hi Bob Thanks for the reply, it still doesn't work for this particular assembly, I can insert other assemblies or components, but when I try to install this assembly it does not appear, plus i still get the message at the bottom saying No Top Level Part Selected Regards Steven
How was the sub-assembly created? Has it been imported by any chance? Can you double check that the parts are solids and not surface bodies. If they are, you will need to show surfaces before seeing them.
and after repair the second part You can see both of them in Your assembly.
And the assembly also as subassembly within Your top.
BUT: both parts are surfeace only!
Maybe You change them to full body parts instead of unblank the construction body surfaces
