Large Design Review

New options and commands give you more control over updates in Large Design Review.

Updates While Opening an Assembly

A new system option lets you control whether or not components are checked for out-of-date graphics data and updated when you open an assembly in Large Design Review mode.

Previously, components were always checked and updated. Now, the default behavior is to not check and update. To return to the old behavior, click Tools > Options > System Options > Assemblies and select Automatic check and update all components.

Updates After Opening an Assembly

Existing command LDR Update has been renamed to Update Connected Components. Two new commands let you update the entire assembly or selected components.
  • Right-click the assembly name at the top of the FeatureManager design tree and click one of the following:
    Update Connected Components (Previously named LDR Update.) Updates the graphics data of all dependent components that become out of date due to changes to their parent components.
    Update Model Graphics Updates the graphics data of the entire model.
  • Right-click a component and click:
    Update Component Graphics Updates the graphics data of the selected component.
