Some uploaded assemblies without parts
Several files on this site are assembly models without the parts attached. When I try to open them I get a message that it's looking for the parts. Is there a special way to load thesemor did the people who up loaded them forget the part files?
That is why it is important to use pack and go, to create a zip file that includes all the active models, sub-assemblies and such into one convient bundle. Also that is why it is good to also create a step file or iges file of assembly, due to other systems being used. otherwise the assembly file is useless!!
It is most likely that the upload has been done incorrectly.. I say this from experience.(yes, I have been an offender too..:-). if using SW. It is always advisable to use the pack and go option from the file drop down menu, this adds al the files (well the ones you select), to a .zip folder . then send.. Dunno about other software though.
