SOLIDWORKS Electrical Data Reuse capabilities (Part 2)

This is the continuation of SOLIDWORKS Electrical Data Reuse capabilities (Part 1)

 

  1. Duplicate Project:

Another important feature is the duplicate project, we can copy the whole project with all its configurations and rename it. It will come up in the project manager and then we can open it to edit or modify anything. The figures below shows the whole process of duplicating a project.

 The duplicated project is not a macro but a separate new project with new name. See figure 10

As this is a new project and not just the drawing sheets inserted, the marks and roots remain same. See figure 11
