A coworker of mine just came back from a Pro/Cabling course and showed me a tecnique of creating a subassembly which contains a Skeleton Model. The first feature of the Skeleton is a shrinkwrap which has all the surfaces of the top level assembly where you want to route cables. This approach allows you to do all your routing in the subassembly without having the top level in session and the cables don't have references to the top level.
The problem I am having is when someone changes any part or assembly that is used at the top level and checks in to Inralink - once I update my "out of date" files my Shrinkwrap feature fails upon regeneration, or when I try and update the Shrinkwrap, which in turn causes all my connectors and cable locations to fail since they reference the Shrinkwrap. Anyone using this tecnique successfully? Maybe there are known problems with shrinkwraps and my version of WF that I am unaware of. I'm using WF2 M050. Any help is appreciated.
We also use the skeleton feature in our 2001 edition. I recognized your type of problem. Have you tray to make the shrinkwrap feature Independent ?? If you modify the copy geometry feature, choose Ã¢ÂÂDependencyÃ¢ÂÂ and change it to Independent instead of Dependent. Then tray to regenerate. Hopefully it will work. God luck!
