eVolve Modify Spool
The modify spool feature gives users the ability to quickly add or remove elements to as assembly or even combine multiple spools.
Modifying a Spool
IMPORTANT: Though available, window selection during this operation will cause a complete redefinition of the spool with only elements you have selected during editing.
- From the eVolve Ribbon, in the Spooling panel, Select Modify Spool.
- From an active project view, select the spool to be modified.
- Add or Remove parts/spools by hovering over and clicking to select desired elements.
- Once all necessary modifications are complete, click Finish.
NOTE: If sheets were generated for the assemblies prior to modifying the assemblies, you will be prompted to regenerate sheets.
