Make two assmbly files from one assembly file

I have an assembly file with two structural frame units. One on the left side and one on the right side.

They used to be attached by a few frame members and were about 20' feet apart from each other.

I took off those 20' members and only have the left side structural group and the right side structural group.

I need the right side group in its own file and the left side group in its own file. We are now using the vault and I don't have

alot of experiance with it. The framing members were not constructed using the frame generator.

What is the safest way to deal with this situation. I do not want to end up with link issues or vault issues.

Highlight all the ones you want in the 2nd assembly ...


Then use the demote command. It'll then need to be saved. Name it in and where to save it in the pop up box ...


You'll see this when you hit save. It'll say intial save
