Replace part in use with other 3d model

Hi there

I do not really get how to work with 3D packages ins FUSION360 electronics. I would like to have a workflow where at first only the volume of a 3D part is created to use it in the electronic design but later this should be replaced with a model upgraded to a full featured layout with all to see.

So I tried this but I ended up with a compnent in the TEAM store which I am not allowed to edit and I do not find a way to get over this. If I want to edit I also get the message that the part is in use and can not be changed.

How could there be a workflow for this?




Regards, Harald

Hi @HarrySatt ,


It's always nice to hear from you. Did you associate the 3D model in a library? A 3D model on can't be associated in the schematic or in the board.

Did you try following the steps in this video?

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

That does not help. For what reason I have a exclamation warning on top telling me that there is a new version in and I should pull it but if I do a am told the lib is up to date. Confusing.

If I try to edit the packages I am told that I am nit allowed to do so because I have no permission to edit my own created part. It is in team lib and I should copy but than I have an empty, only footprint, model. What the hell all this is meaning. I am really confused.

All I want to do is make the package I now use which is very rudimentary a bit more better looking. Why is this not possible? Where is the package I currently have in my design? Where is the place in team I can edit the package?

A lot of questions I am not able to answer.

Regards, Harald
