Sometimes I need to create several drawings which will later become part of one exploded view in another drawing.

Sometimes I simple open one drawing make a selection, press ctrl/C, go to the other drawing and press ctrl/V and move the resultaing mix till I like what I see.

I am trying to copy "PART" of valve slider base5.tcw to valve slider exploded.tcw

This operastion has worked in the past but in this case the copy does not work

I have tried to attach these files.to this message.

Can anyone see why, on this occasion, the copy doe not work, the axes and workplanes seem to align , I am missing something.


Thanks, Jim

Hi Jim
It works fine at my end. I was able to copy the valve slider exploded into another new sheet with out any trouble.

It works for me as well.  That said a different method you can try is to use either Extract From or Insert file.

OK,

Thanks for that, I was trying to copy the slider to join the exploded! but I just tried the way you did it and at first it would NOT work. I tried just repeatng the procedure and it worked!

After a couple of tries, I also managed to copy the objects in the opposite direction as well!

I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. I do not think I have seen the last of this little puzzle

Thanks,
Jim
