Copy design without downloading unwanted files

Status: Implemented
by Explorer guerra.romain on ‎01-15-2014 01:05 AM

When I make a copy design of a simple assembly (composed of 2 parts and one drawing), even if I set the parameters to those files only, it takes about 5 min because Vault downloads on my computer all the files (~700) needed for the mega assembly where my simple assembly goes.

 

Couldn't that be simpler and faster?

 

I have been told by my local Autodesk support that "Inventor needs all the files to be able to correct the whole without compromising other links"

 

I still don't understand why, because it works very well when I make a simple copy-paste in Windows, and it's very quick!

I agree with this.  When you have PART-A that is used in multiple assemblies, if you make a copy design that includes PART-A, it will download every assembly PART-A is used in, even if those assemblies are not changing.

 

This almost seems more like a bug fix than a feature request.
