Copy Assemblies from one folder to another

Copy Assemblies from one folder to another

Copy Assemblies from one folder to another

I am using UGNX in native mode and I have approx. 1000 part files of a large assembly. I want an easy way to copy subassemblies and their components from the main directory and into a separate directory, directly from UG.

RE: Copy Assemblies from one folder to another

Use assembly cloning.

Copy once with a prefix into your new directory, copy again stripping off the prefix. This will give you your original file names but in the new directory structure.

There is a UGPC->Zip program from someone in Germany that will make a zip file of an assembly and all of its components. Here is the link: http://www.w-eng.de/ugzipc.htm

Thanks! The UG Zip program works great. Exactly what I was looking for.

RE: Copy Assemblies from one folder to another

If you don't need a zipped up collection, I have placed a free utility called "Save All As" on http://www.solidnx.com/download. It will allow saving the current assembly, or all loaded parts, to a new directory without renaming or zipping any.


RE: Copy Assemblies from one folder to another

I have a problem with the history icons in the navigator.
When I moved some of the files from one folder to another, I lost the icons in the navigator. How can I link the history to the new location?
