Replace non linked components?

Im trying to replace a component in my assemblies however the components are not linked since they were not made in fusion originaly. There is no easy option to replace a non linked component that i have found that doesent include deleting it and replaceing it that way...

 

Is it possible to link the component to seperate design or is there any other way this can be done?

Hi @calle_marlow Here is some product documentation that will show you how you can do this.

Can you provide more details on what you are trying to do? When I first read your post my assumption was that you had an assembly file and had opened a non-native Fusion file and inserted it into the assembly. Which would link it, unless you broke the link. 

 

Based on your image, you have opened a file and I can see it has one body. I'm not quite following what you are trying to achieve. Can you help fill in some more details for me? 

 

Thanks,

Hi @calle_marlow 

Currently,  I don't believe there is a way to replace internal components. This is a good wish list suggestion.

Thanks,

It would be! Or a option to relink components to a external design.

@calle_marlow I am curious. Can you not simply edit the design of the component already there? External components can still be edited and it seems the only difference (from looking at it) is the design in the centre. You could re-sketch (or import a dxf) of the central design and extrude cut it into the component already within the assembly?

I could do that or delete it and place the new component but that component is in multiple designs, i would have to do that 10+ times...

@calle_marlow Unfortunately I think that may be what is needed here. Whilst there is a lot you can do with an external design there are limitations. If you think you may need to replace it again in the future it may be worth considering re-drawing the design as a Fusion file given that the shape is not too complex! 🙂
