Replacing Components 

This task shows you how to replace components into an assembly.
In an assembly you may replace:
  • A component by a component completely different (a jack by a wheel for example).
  • A component by a component from the same family (a gearbox by another for example).

Both cases the constraints reconnection is only warranted either:

  • Component product structure is the same.
  • Instance names of products in the replacing component are the same.
  • Constraints reference the same published elements:

  1. Select a component in the specifications tree.
  1. Click the Replace Component icon in the Product Structure Tools toolbar.
