Reference Aspects of Part Studios

ben_freyben_frey Member Posts: 8 EDU
Hello,

I ran into an issue of referencing a certain part from a studio and want to be able to use geometry of this part in another studio. I simply want to apply a "cut" from my part in Part Studio x (bottom picture), to an object in Part Studio y (top picture). I've attached some screenshots.

I would typically try to just combine into one part studio, but that would take a lot of time moving sketches over and redesigning part. Is their any way to do this quickly, or should I combine into one part studio?

Please let me know if this is not clear enough, thanks!
Ben

    Hi @ben_frey - looks like an interesting part! Please take a look at the Derive feature - you can make a link to model & sketch geometry between multiple Part Studios. If they are not in the same position you will have to use Transform (with mate connectors).

    Thank you, Neil. I have no idea how many hours you've probably saved me from searching through documentation and experimentation!

    Thanks,

    If your parts are goint to be assembled together, you may also be interested in in-context editing:
