Changes target 3D solids of component-based features.
Accessing the Command
command bar: bmlink
menu bar: Assembly | Link component
toolbar: Assembly | Link component
ribbon: Home | Assembly | Link component
Quad cursor menu: Model | Link
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select component instances or [Change target 3d solids]: (Select a component.)
Select target 3D solids or [Append/cleaR/Select all affected 3d solids] <Select all affected 3d solids>: (Select target solids, choose an option, or press Enter.)
Select additional target 3D solids or [Change/cleaR/Select all affected 3d solids] <Select all affected 3d solids>: (Select another target solids, choose an option, or press Enter.)
|Change target 3d solids
|Allows you to choose the new set of target solids. Component-based features will be removed and new ones will be created for selected solids.|
|Append||Allows you to add new solids to set of target solids. Component-based features will be updated and new ones will be created for the selected solids.|
|cleaR||Allows you to remove the existed component-based features and their geometry (see BmUnlink).|
|Select all affected 3d solids||This mode is similar to 'Change target 3d solids' but solids are chosen automatically. A solid will be chosen if any solids from BC_SUBTRACT layer intersects it or if any other solid from the BC_UNITE layer touches or intersects it.|
BmInsert - inserts an existing mechanical component or sheet metal form feature into the current drawing.
BmUnlink - breaks the connection between a component insert (e.g. a Window) and a 3D solid (e.g. a Wall) retaining the opening.
