Reshare a selective instance
Existing selective instances can be reshared within its assembly structure. This effectively removes the context-dependent instance information of the selectively unshared component, and all selective instances below it in the assembly structure. The original data used by the other, normal shared components is restored.
Resharing a component will destroy all instance information defined for it, including positioning and part color.
To reshare a selective instance:
1. Click Structure and then, in the Part & Assembly group, click Selective.
2. Click Reshare. The Sel Reshare dialog box opens.
3. Specify the part or subassembly to reshare:
Select it from the Structure Browser.
Enter its path and name in the Source data entry field.
Click the part in the viewport.
4. Click to complete the operation.
Creo Elements/Direct Modeling reshares the selective instance and all the selective instances below it in the assembly structure.
