"Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

Level 8

"Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

I have an assembly that consists of many holes and when use the Model Tree to edit the definition, the icon does not appear. I made sure the "read only" function is not active, but I cannot seem to fix the issue. I have attached an image of the Model Tree and the options I receive when I click on an assembly part within the Tree. Any suggestions would be great.

 

Using Creo 4.0

Re: "Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

Thoughts that come to mind:

 

1. I know you are using Creo 4 but is the assembly active? There is a config to revert auto-activate to pre-Creo 4 state.

2. Are you working in PDM? Is the assembly checked out?

3. Are you using the right license?

 

Can you perform other operations in the assembly?

Re: "Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

The assembly is not active, it is not checked out (not using PDM), and the licensing is correct. I can perform other operations on the assembly - I can click on Extrude (in the image provided in the post), which is right above the assembly parts in question, in the Model Tree and I can have full control/operations. These parts in the assembly that are not able to be edited were created in the assembly. They were not created on a specific part and the part added to the assembly (not sure if this info helps at all).

Re: "Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

I see. I thought the screenshot was from an assembly but now I understand it is from a part. Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the functionality exists to edit an assembly level cut at the part level. You have to re-define it at the assembly level. I try to avoid assembly level cuts at all costs though so I don't work with them very often.

Re: "Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

You have to enable feature properties for components in assembly (intersection tab). When checked you can edit assembly features on part lvl.

 

 

Re: "Edit Definition" option not available for parts of assembly

I am not seeing where to "enable feature properties". Could you go into a little bit more detail? Possibly a picture of where this is located?

 

Thanks
