Moving items within a part drawing

243 Views, 2 Replies

Sorry if my terminology isn't correct but. I am trying to move a component within a part drawing, not an assembly. When I do "move bodies" it wants to move every extrusion within my drawing. If I click move face, then I have to click every face that I want to move (which is time consuming) and then it often times doesn't work? Sometime it works other times it just moves the origin indicator and doesn't move the faces I have selected. Can anybody give me some advice?

If you are not trying to move a body or face, what are you trying to move?

Why can't you simply edit the sketch or the feature?

Attach the part here.

The reason that EVERY solid feature moves is because when you created the features you omitted to "separate" them from the main body. Rather an obscure icon at the bottom of options icons when you create a solid feature. Took me hours to figure this one out.
