How to duplicate the files of libraries during insertion in SOLIDWORKS?
When you use CloneComponents you have three possibilities for the site of the inserted components:
- Not to duplicate, the component will be always referred compared to the shelf unit.
- To create a virtual component, with the possibility of renaming.
- To duplicate the component in a specific folder or the folder of the assembly.
To avoid creating doubled blooms of file name you can them rename automatically during insertion (addition of a counter for example), to modify coasts or automatically to launch SmartProperties after the insertion of the component.
