To Replace a Flexible Component with a New Copy
1. In an open assembly, select one or more components to be replaced, right-click, and select from the shortcut menu or click Operations > Replace. The Replace dialog box opens.
2. Click By Copy.
3. Accept the default name or enter a name for the new component in the File Name text box.
4. Select or clear the Maintain flexibility check box.
If the Maintain flexibility check box is cleared, the new copy contains the same geometry as the flexible component without the flexibility factor.
5. Click OK.
