to derived parts in sw2006 sp0.0?
I have a mold assembly that a lot of mates and external references are going
dangling if I make a change to the parent part. For instance, I have a right
wear plate and a left wear plate. The left is a mirror, derived, of the
right. I then did an external reference in the mold assembly for the tap
locations in the b-plate, points concentric with the circle edge of the wear
plates. I change a dimension on the parent part, the right wear plate, and
the tap location points in the b-plate go dangling, but only for the left
wear plate, the child.
It seems the internal ID's of the edges and faces are being lost on derived
parts at some point in the rebuilding. So anything mated or referenced to a
derived part, all the mates go dangling. It's not consistent however. I made
up a simple assembly and got it to reproduce twice but at random. I tried
to use the capture in Solidworks RX but couldn't get it to reproduce while
Is anyone else pulling their hair out like me?
