I have created parts made up of a smaller parts themselves, them multiple assemblies of different parts that are all used in a final asembly. Now I need to give this whole assembly to someone. I tried sending all the files together with the assembly. However, when the receiver tried to open the assembly, most of the file references could not be resolved and inventor asked for the path of each, which would take too long to do.
Is there any way around this?
It's called a Pack and Go.
Open the master assembly and than on the drop down menu where you can find the save and save as....click on save as and there you can find pack and go. Here you can select a destination folder and include all reference files. When all setings are done. Click start.
It will automaticaly copy all files that are referenced in this master assembly and even create a project file to. This is what you need to pass on if you want to be sure that you will pass on a working model.
