Assembly won't automatically update


Recommended Posts

I used to be able to update a part, save it and then the assembly would automatically update. This is no longer happening. Is there a setting somewhere that I have to change?


When I close the assembly and re open it asks if I would like to update then. I feel like I shouldn't have to close an assembly each time I make an update to a part.


Thanks in advance

Have you made any changes to Tools>Application Options?

You can always do an Update (click icon) or Rebuild All (click icon) rather than close and re-open a file.


Can you attach the assembly here that exhibits this behavior?

Thanks for the reply. No I have not changed any options at all. I tried the rebuild all and update buttons on the manage tab, however neither of them worked. It did work however when I clicked refresh under the file menu > manage > refresh. This is great and saves me a lot of time, however I would still prefer it if this was automatic.


I also have another issue. I have a plate that I am trying to mate onto 4 bolts. The mate with the first bolt goes fine, however the second one fails. In my experience this usually means the the holes don't match up with the bolts, however I have measured the distance between the holes and the bolts and they appear to be the same distance to me. I have been pulling my hair out over this one. I have mated the other side fine which should be exactly the same.


Please find attached my assembly and child parts (not sure if the child parts needed to be included?)
