Please help I made a drawing where I have used the principal part ,but after sometime I just want to replace that view to its family part .
I don't find any way to replace just simple thing ,please help.
select the layout tab then in the Model Views section, select the icon "Drawing Models"
In the new menu box, select replace
A new menu box will appear with all the parts of your family table, select the desired model > open
It is currently not possible to replace the model in one view with a different instance of a family table.
As noted, this can be done for the entire drawing.
However, we are working on an enhancement that will be coming in Creo 4.0 to allow replacement of the model in a single view. Stay tuned for more details on Creo 4.0 enhancements as we get closer to its delivery late next year.
There is a related Product Idea: (Redefine a master rep general view and convert it in a simplified rep view for a PART drawing).
Even though this idea mentions Simplified Rep, the same tool will also support Family Table replacement.
Can't you just add that instance to the models in the drawing and add a view with that one instance? The draw back is you cannot relate the other view to it as far a projection views go. But you can definitely have different models in different views, you just have to have the different models loaded into the drawing.
