To Update an External Simplified Representation
Updates to external simplified representations occur in this manner:
Dependent—Updated according to the reference representation and for component placement changes.
Independent—Updated only for component placement changes.
1. Open an external simplified representation assembly.
2. Select the top-level assembly in the Model Tree and click Update Representation. For an independent external simplified representation, the Open Rep dialog box opens.
3. Select the representation to update and click OK. The external simplified representation is updated.
In case of a structural conflict between the external simplified representation and the reference assembly, you may need to redefine the external simplified representation.
