adding parts into an assembly from different directory


New member
Can parts be added to an assembly from another directory without getting an error cannot find part each time the assembly is freshly loaded. For example the directory my assembly is in is c:/auv and I want to add fasteners from the directory c:/auv/fasteners.

I would think it would be possible.


use the

search_path, option from

you can use this option as many times you need to define multiple directories

but be carefull not to have same parts in different directories with different versions.

in this case proe will load every part finds first in your assembly
