saveUG assembly & Child as a sigle part

Hello Guys,


My question is how to store UG Assembly and it's child part in a signle file?


E.g. Consider following Example - Assembly with 2 components:-


Top_asm


|_Part1


|_Part2


When I invoke save it will create 3 UG Parts viz. Top_asm.prt,Part1.prt and Part2.prt.


I don't want this, I want to store above structure as a single file say Top_asm.prt which will contain Part1.prt and Part2.prt both attached to Top_asm.prt.


Can any one explain this?


Thanks


Gaurav

That just isn't the way the software works. Each component is a separate file for reuse issues. The assembly is just a conatiner that points to the componets and brings in a copy of the geometry.


If you want a single file, try an export to IGES, then import this back into NX as a single part.
