Disaster! Updating "reference" assembly broke in-context part
Hey friends, hoping there's a simple fix. To create a part that must attach to a real-world object, I first modeled the real-world object, which consists of a simple c-shaped extrusion. Then I added a mate connector and finally created a new part in-context.
Many many features later after running a test print, I realized that one of my angle in my c-shaped bracket was off by a few degrees. I figured I could easily adjust that angle, then update the context of the new part and all would be fine - it was only a slight adjustment.
Well my new part is completely in the red now, and rolling back to the very beginning, the "world origin" of my new part has NOT moved to match the new position of the mate connector, but remains in the old mater connector's position, thus throwing all my USEd elements from the reference part out of whack.
This is going to be hours to rebuild. Anyone have a better idea?
FWIW here's a link to the document. I tried to create a version so I could link to that as I intend to keep working on this project, but I'm not sure if my method for doing that was successful: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/8020f6efccaa36af522f6bbb/v/e506f754a0fdb00143f753de/e/c1187767518e171cf9a1a2bc?renderMode=0&uiState=61d4db35ffd4ec6337266c21
