Updating components in an assembly

If I build an assembly with components and then I change a component, how do I get the assembly to update?

If it’s actually a component, the instance in the assembly will change (update) when you change any other instance of the same component.


Are you editing the component in the same model with the rest of the assembly? If so, what Gully said. If you are editing the component in another SketchUp session, you’ll have to replace the existing version with the edited one. It’s generally easier to edit within the same model especially if you can use other parts in the assembly as references for the changes.

Thanks Dave and Gully. I wound up editing in the model as suggested.
