How to break reference

In an assembly, I made a copy of surfaces, from another part. Now I want to break the dependency to the original part.

 

How I can do this?

The key is to collapse the copied surface(s) into the independent geometry feature.  Watch this video:

I don't have the option to back up references available within the copy.

I don't have also Windchill...

Ok. Fine.

 

and if i don't have the command available?

 

 

Re: How to break reference

You can't pick collapse until the independent geometry feature exists first.  You also have to select both of the features together before you can pick collapse.

Re: How to break reference

Sorry, but I still don't found how to do it. I select the copy, but the collapse, isn't available. So how can I create the independent feature?

Re: How to break reference

Video is working now.  Watch it and see if it helps.  If for some reason you can't create an independent geometry feature, you could probably import a STEP file (of anything), delete all the stuff inside the import, and then collapse your surface into that feature.
