Pack and go - IAM

Got a problem with my Pack n Go.


Just wanted to copy an assembly by pack-and-go-ing it to another directory.

Everythink looked fine, all files in the new folder. 

But when i opened the .iam file, several .ipt files are used from the old path





Pack and go to:



If i open C:\BBB\Engine.iam my IPTs got the patch: C:\AAA\xyz.ipt.

But of course I want the .IAM to use the files in C:\BBB\*.ipt


Hopefully you understand my problem. Thx for helping!

Are any of those part files library files by chance?

Make sure you have switched to the new project to search the paths of your copied assembly and parts.


If you are still in the original project opening your new assembly Inventor will look in the first paths and if it finds a correctly named part it will use it.


Also as danzco stated if these parts are in libraries but were skipped at pack and go they will still be referencing the originals.
