New Part in Part Studio, Insert into Assembly in desired position

Kenneth_PacardoKenneth_Pacardo Member Posts: 1 PRO
I created a model with multiple Parts in Part Studio and I inserted them all into my Assembly positioned to how I want them to be. If I go back to my Part Studio and add a new Part to my model, it does not show up when I go back to Assembly. I have to insert the new Part individually and position it according to how the rest of my model is oriented in my Assembly.

Is there a way to update my Part Studio model that is within my Assembly to include all the new Parts I created and have the new Parts be in the position I set them in in Part Studio? (Instead of inserting and positioning each new Part in my Assembly one by one)

    Yes, very easy, in the insert dialog, expand the Part Studio, and click on the new created part.
    And then the new part is in the position  you want.

    Kenneth_Pacardo - please see this post for a full explanation . . . 


    Bottom line - being able to insert an entire part studio is a convenience - it is not a  a sub assembly. 
    Adding parts to a sub assembly adds them everywhere that sub assembly is used.
    Adding a part to a part studio no more adds it to an assembly than creating a new SolidWorks part file will automatically add it to an assembly you are working on.

    I hope this helps :)
