Assembly Structure Editing

To modify the assembly structure: 

  1. Click Tools, Reorganize Components.

  2. Select the components that you want to move, either in the FeatureManager design tree or in the graphics area. The selected components are listed in the Components to move box.

    All the components selected for a single operation must be at the same level in one parent assembly.

  3. Click the Destination assembly box, then click the appropriate assembly icon in the FeatureManager design tree.

    If any components or features will be deleted as a result of the move, the dialog box expands to display a list of the affected items. See Effects of Assembly Structure Editing .

  4. Click Move. The component icons appear at the end of the component section of the destination assembly.
