Regenerate iAssemblies?

245 Views, 3 Replies

With the iAssembly I created I now have a message when I open the drawing informing me that i need to regenerate the factory. This terminology is new to me and I have not been able to accomplish this task. I have opened the assembly, selected manage, and updated the assembly with each of the iAssemblies active. This apparently is not sufficent. Can someone please inform me how to regenreate my factory?

 

Thank you

1) Expand the table node in the browser for the factory file.

2) Shift select all of the members.

3) RMB and select "Generate Model"

4) Save

2014 uses "Generate files" but works just as described. Been causing me headaches for a few weeks now. Searched for a better way. GRIN
