Make copied part independent Make copied part independent Hepcat2 (Industrial) (OP) 28 Dec 09 16:43 How do you make a copied part independent? That way you can edit it without all the other parts changeing as well. RE: Make copied part independent 5177 (Mechanical) 4 Feb 10 03:15 Open a new drawing, copy the part, rename it within a new opened file, then copy and paste renamed file back to original drawing file. Hope this helps. RE: Make copied part independent Hepcat2 (Industrial) (OP) 4 Feb 10 08:37 Thanks for the response. I have found that instead of copying the part, you can copy either instance or deffinition, I forget which one, and that makes the copied part act as an independent part.
