Are there any sideeffects when using the subassemblies?
When I am working with assemblies that consist of large part numbers is it better to work with sub assemblies or just parts?
i think we cannot move or change the sub assembly in the assembly without using the edit assembly option.
for example if u have a scissor lift mechanism as a sub assembly in an assembly u cannot change the height of it then and there without pressing the option edit assembly.
i think it might be the only side effect if we use sub assemblies
You sometimes loose a mates, but when you wish change a subassembly you can get a amusing results. From that reasons you must planning subassemblies. I've worked with it and when I changed subassembly I got a unpleasant result and sometimes is better to do all from skratch- it's faster and less mind pain.
