solidworks external reference multibody part

By Voinea on 17 Mar 08:18 2 answers 0 comments

Hello everybody, i prefer working in multibody parts. But when i brake the multi body in individual parts, i don't like that is always links it whit the original multibody part. My question: is it possible to permanently delete the external reference ? I know i can break it from the list of external reference, but can it be deleted? thank you

    Try the old technique of saving the parts as parasolid, re-import them and use FeatureWorks to recognize features.

    We don't have in SW any features to do this.
    Another way is to create assembly and than create in the contex this part.
