I am designing a simple air engine but some of the parts that I have designed are not in the same drawings as the rest. For example the piston and the cylinder are two completely different drawings. How do I move the piston to the drawing that the cylinder is in? I'm using 2012 Autodesk inventor fusion. Thanks

 

attached is the piston and cylinder drawing.

You can access Insert Component in the Fusion Browser.

 

  1. Open Cylinder.dwg
  2. Right-click on Cylinder in the browser.
  3. Select Insert Component.
  4. Browse to the piston file and click Open.
  5. Place the pistion in the graphics window.

Hope this helps.
