Backup of a part with dependent copy geometry feature

Backup of a part with dependent copy geometry feature

I am having a part (say A.prt) with "external copy geometry" feature (dependent on original part, say B.prt). When I take backup of A.prt, i do not get the B.prt in backup directory. Is there any method to get the B.prt also? Thanx Ankur

You can make a backup of the assembly in which both A.prt and B.prt is.

RE: Backup of a part with dependent copy geometry feature

thanx for the reply. yes u r right. but i have part A and other parts in my assembly but part B is not in the assembly. Actaully I am working on impeller of pump. Part B is vane of impeller and part A is impeller with vane as copy geometry from part B, pattern of copy geometry feature and some other features. Can I take backup of part B? I tried it, but cud not back up part B. Is there any option in config file for it? Ankur

It sounds like you should insert B.prt to the assembly as a skeleton model. That way it doesn't show up in BOM lists etc. If that isn't suitable maybe you can either make the copy geometry independent or simply copy B.prt to the backup directory.
