I have a part, "B" that has been mirrored from part "A". The design is complete and I wish to sever the link between the two.
I began the process and reached a point of partial severance but cannot get any further.
Perhaps I overlooked something.
Here are the steps I have taken:1) Developed part A until satisfactory.
2) Mirrored part A, and produced an new derived part B.3) Tweeked part A until final design approved.
4) Opened part B, and in Feature Manager, right clicked on the solid body (having external reference -> ) and "List External Refs..". In the dialog box, I clicked the "Break external Links" Button. ( ->x ) This is suppoosed to permanently break the links and sure enough any change to A does not show in B.
B still rebuilds itself. SolidWorks explorer shows that B has a reference to A. Isn't B supposed to be an autonomous part now?
What is going on? Can I truely sever the link?
