I can't create a dwg from an assembly because it's telling me that "The factory must be updated before views of it's members can be used".  What does this mean and how do you update the factory???

Open the iassembly. Do a rebuild all then save then regenerate the members.

Factory/members means you either have an iassemby or iparts are being used in that model. Check again.

patvenetucci, look in the top position of your browser of the part you are working on. I would expect there to be a checkerboard icon and the term Table there. This indicates that you have a part that has been made into an Ipart. This is essentually multipul parts linked in a table form. You may have to open each of the parts in the table and regenerate them.
