If you have a part that you need to change the name of, say for example Part1-Rev1.sldprt and you want to rename it to Part1-Rev2.sldprt but you also want the drawing and assembly to update with the new name then here are the steps to complete this action:
- Open the Drawing and Assembly the original part is contained in
- Open the Part to be renamed.
- Make sure the Drawing and Assembly are in the background.
- From the Part hit File/ Save As
- DO NOT hit Save as Copy
- Simply rename it to anything you want in this case Part1-Rev2.sldprt and hit Save
- Now go back to the Drawing, and Assembly and you should see how the reference updated.
- Lastly save the Assembly and Drawing and you are done.
