I’m working on a woodworking project. I have created a bunch of roughed up mockup components for a few things, such as furniture legs, boards, etc, with custom attributes and behaviour for scaling.
In the libarary model, I right-clicked the component used save as and saved it into a components folder.
In the actual product model I used the components view to open the local collection pointiing to the components folder, and placed a bunch of them into the model, 4 furniture legs, a bunch of boards, etc,
scaled them accordingly, and specified the custom attributes.
Now I would like to make the legs a bit nicer, and add a few extra options, but it seems like whenever I replace the DC either using rightlick -> replace, or righclick -> dynamic components -> swap, I get a warning that the component has been edited. But it hasn’t, although the attributes have been modified using the component options view.
If I carry out the reload / swap, all the attributes are forgotten, and the values from the component are loaded.
Is there a way to avoid this?
This is my first post, I’m happy to share the model, so you can take a look at it, but not sure how to do that.
