I have a problem with copying my assemblies to another place on my computer. When I move or copy an assembly into a new place all constraints are destroyed.
How can I copy an assembly that its constraints Doesn't been destroyed?!

To move or copy an assembly file and it's component files, open the assembly in CATIA and use the File + Send To option.

File + Save Management can also be used with the Save As option to copy and/or rename some or all of the CATIA files.

A CATIA assembly contains links to all the components. The two methods above will modify the links when the files are moved or copied. Moving the files any other way will not change the links.
