The assembly restructure tool allows you to reorder your assembly structure between main assembly and sub assemblies in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire. Below are the operations than you can perform using the assembly restructuring tool.

1. Move a component from main assembly to sub-assembly.
2. Move a component from sub-assembly to main assembly.
3. Move a component from sub-assembly to another sub-assembly.
4. Move a sub-assembly into different level of sub-assembly.


Download the assembly file used in the tutorial below: asm_restructure.zip

The PART_A1.PRT is restructured into ASM_A.ASM. Your model tree should look like below.

5. Repeat the step 2 to step 4 to move the PART_A2.PRT to ASM_A.ASM. When you are done, your model tree should look like below.

* The first component of an assembly or a subassembly is not able to restructure.
** You may face some missing references error when you are opening the subassembly with restructured components inside. To avoid this, you should open the main assembly first. Otherwise you can perform the Edit References to fix it.
