Divide a multibody part into different parts
Hello there guys. I have a problem using solidworks and i would like your help.
I have a part that consists of many bodies (multibody). Does anyone know how can i save those bodies apart??
I know that one option is to delete the bodies that we don't want, and save the part, but i don't want to have the whole feature tree for a small piece of part.
Thank you in advance!!
Hi andreas. multibody parts should not replace the use of assemblies. a general rule to follow is that one part (multibody or not) should represent one part number in a "Bill of Materials".
a folder named "Solid Bodies" appears in the FeatureManager design tree when there are solid bodies in a single part document. The number of solid bodies in the part document is displayed in parentheses next to the "Solid Bodies" folder .
try this it may be help you
Select commands to apply to all bodies within a folder.
List features that belong to each body.
Thank you for your answer fssane!!
I am modeling a tft monitor and I finished the front part, and in order to design the back part, i need the back surface of the front part (i don't know if you understand what i say). I don't like using assemblies for such things because the mate refferences go crazy when you try to move one part. It changes the sketches you have used as reference.
yes Andreas i get what you mean. Couse of mate refferences u cant make changings on the any of part. firstly what part you want to make changes select part right click and then "show mates". u need to inactive or delete mate refferences.
and if refferences in the sketch of the body u have to re-mate and delete old mate refferences.
