Inserting a SpeedPak

You can insert an assembly with a SpeedPak configuration into a higher level assembly.

To insert a SpeedPak:

  • In the higher level assembly, insert the sub-assembly by any of the following methods:
    • Use the Insert Component PropertyManager. Select the SpeedPak configuration under Configurations in the Open dialog box.
    • Drag from the File Explorer tab in the Task Pane.
    • Drag from the Design Library in the Task Pane.
    • Drag from Windows Explorer.
    • Ctrl + drag within the assembly to insert additional instances of existing components.

    In the region surrounding the pointer, only the faces and body you selected for the SpeedPak are visible. They are the only items you can select for operations such as mating.

    To see this behavior, make sure the driver for your graphics card is up to date. See http://www.solidworks.com/pages/services/VideoCardTesting.html.
