  3. Step 3: Make Your Own Folder, Add Parts

    On the Left Side Nav Panel You can see all the parts. I suggest creating your own section by creating a folder, naming it, and then pasting in the files that you want to change. This will keep the originals from getting messed up.


  4. Step 4: Edit the Part:

    Click the part to Get into the File:

    Remove Unused parts and Configurations. I Suggest you only have one drive type, one material, one thread style etc. for Every part, you need a different part number. This will save on the part numbers you need to create:
