Learn how to import additional files to an existing project, such as a screwdriver to be used within the assembly instructions.
- [Instructor] If we ever need to import…or insert additional files into our existing projects,…we just go to the file drop down,…and open, and then just navigate to…whichever file I'd like to import.…In this case I have a screwdriver, for example,…that I'd like to throw into my project.…What's important to note here is that…you can use any 3D CAD for Composer.…
It doesn't have to be a SOLIDWORKS file,…or a Composer file,…and if I actually hit this dropdown here,…you can see a whole number of import options.…So pretty much whatever 3D CAD you design in,…you can use in Composer.…But the important thing when importing files,…is my three options over here on the right hand side.…So the default, just open,…of course we'll open this file…in just a new project, so it will open…only the screwdriver file.…
I also have merge into a new document.…This works in a similar manner,…just changes the folder structure,…but again, opens the screwdriver in its own new document.…What we want to do here,…is merge into the current document.…
