I am very new to PTC Creo Parametric 3.0, and I am trying to replace a .prt file in my assembly with a 3D part model that I downloaded from the web. For example, the part that I am replacing is a resistor on a Printed Circuit Board. Currently, the resistor is just a 3D rectangular box, but I downloaded the actual 3D model of the resistor and replaced the part. I renamed it the same as the original part, as well.
Since I am very new to Creo, I know that this is probably an easy problem to solve. I am guessing that the 3D part that I downloaded doesn't have the same reference that the original part had. But I am not very sure how to fix this.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Thanks for your response. The current resistor does not have any children.
When you say to "delete it and assemble downloaded 3D model", what process should I take to do this?
