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
Perhaps I overlooked something.
Here are the steps I have taken:
Developed part A until satisfactory.
Mirrored part A, and produced an new derived part B.
Tweeked part A until final design approved.
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?
