Exporting body from a catpart file


Super Moderator
(I received the following question from Judah as a Private Message)

I am wondering how can I save or export an inserted body in a catpart file separately.
Let's say I have a body part and then I insert a body. At the end of my modelling, I would want to save this inserted body separately as a catpart file.
How can I do this or is it possible at all?

Thanks a lot.

1. make a new Part file.
2. Copy the PartBody, and 3. use Paste Special, As Specified in Part Document.
4. you will probably get some errors about the sketches - just re-define each Sketch Support in the new Part file.

If the body is complex, you might want to use a PowerCopy instead.
