I have a main assembly that consists of two subassemblies. One of the subassemblies is an alternate position assembly. I need to transfer some hardware from the alternate position subassembly up to the main assembly. Solid Edge won't let me do that. Is there a workaround?
It's only a couple of screws and nuts, but I can see a real problem developing if it involved a lot of hardware or other items.
The only thing I can think of is to temporarily swap in the master subassembly and try again. Any thoughts?
This is another opportunity for an enhnancement.
I think you have it all covered... sorry, no help here... I see the IR submitted...
FOAs - danged if we do, danged if we don't... !!!
In the mean time, if anyone runs into a similar issue, here is a summary of a workaround proposed by Jeff Anderson at GTAC:
The Save Member As allows you to have a non FOA to move parts into another assembly. You will still need to go into you FOA and delete the parts. I would recommmend this method if you are dealing with large numbers of parts. In a case where there are smaller numbers of parts, you may be better off just dragging them into the desired assembly from the library. It depends on whether you are faster at creating a non FOA subassembly and doing the swapping or whether you are faster at deleting them from one sub and adding them to another.
