    Right click the component in Assembly Navigator and choose "Make Unique". This will make the component unique, it asks you to save it to give it another name. This will cut the link between the original instance so that you can edit one without affecting another.

    Hi!, that worked perfectly, I could edit the two parts inside the assembly until the point where they star to need differents designs that is where I use the "Make Unique" so I haven't to start over again or change my assembly.

    thank you
