How do I make an assembly out a complex part?

Question by Carlos Siva

I have designed a stool which has 7 parts. I have already saved each part, turning them into bodies then.
Now I'm trying to remember how do I make the original file go from solidpart to solidassembly, enabling me to draw each body separetly. Once I saw something like that, but I can't recall how to do that.

thank you guys in advance!

You can just create a new assembly and pull in each solid part file. Adding the mates as you are going along.

Try to learn about mating constraints in assemply module.That are used to make the assemply from seperate parts

Guys, thank you very much for the time and attention to my question.
I remembered how I did the first time and worked: I created a complex part, like a chair, let's say. Then I saved each body with the Save Bodies comand in the Insert tab, and right after I used Create Assembly (insert tab) and saved it with its right name. That way I got myself an Assembly which I needed not to mate one-by-one.

Thank you guys!
