Understanding the Subassembly Save Levels

Subassembly Save Levels

When working in the Subassembly Prompts, there are different save options located at the bottom of the interface. Because subassemblies are shared across a project, multiple save levels have been incorporated to allow you to create “unique” subassemblies when changes across the project aren’t desired. Subassemblies can be saved accordingly: 

  1. To the Project – Saving to the project level means that all subassemblies in the project, with the same subassembly name, will receive any changes that were made to the subassembly.
  2. To the Product – Saving to the product level means that all subassemblies in a product, with the same subassembly name, will receive any changes that were made to the subassembly.
  3. To the Subassembly Only (Row) – Saving to the row level means that only that particular subassembly in a product will receive the changes that were made to the subassembly.

When working with subassemblies, it is important to think about the level at which the subassemblies will be saved. By default, the Subassembly Prompts will have the save option “Save this Subassembly Only” selected.
