Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting individual parts, part of SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal Design.
Making multi bodies is a quick and efficient way to design.…The only problem is, is that all the parts are together in one part file.…It makes it difficult to make individual drawings or to create an assembly of the…individual parts. No problem, though.…The last time we looked at this part, we made a split body and separated this into…individual pieces. However, they're all still in the same part.…If you open that feature up, the split body.…We can take a look inside there and you can see that we can save out individual…files by just clicking on anyone one of them here, and adding a file name.…If you didn't do this in this process, that's okay, we can always go back and add…that later. Click on OK.…
And we come up to cut list up here, if you expand that out, you can see here's all…the individual pieces. Now, the first thing that we can do is…right click on it and say Insert into New Part.…As soon as I do that it's going to ask me to save the part.…In this case here, I'm going to say 5.5.1. Click on Save.…
