Designing Around Third-party Assemblies
I am a new OS user and I'm trying to figure out how to migrate my processes from Solidworks. One thing that I miss is editing parts within the context of an assembly. I know that it is being investigated and that the current suggestion is to model everything in a parts studio. This works well in most cases, however, I often need to work with third-party assemblies. I have successfully imported assemblies into OS as assemblies or flattened parts studios, however, OS doesn't seem to allow me to use the Derived function to bring in Assemblies or entire Parts Studios to build parts around. Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
