    Groups and parts

    Hello

    I have made a complicated wall with many layers and then I clicked parts which breaks it into constituent elements.
    This wall module is something I want to move around as a group. It seems once you have made parts you cannot use groups. Is there a way to reverse parts?

    I see I can make sets. Is this basically the same as a group or is there a fundamental difference?

    Thanks in advance.

    I wouldnt (personally) use Parts for "altering" the wall, in a way that makes you need to copy the parts around. You can just copy the wall around. If the wall is that different from the Parts, i would model the wall differently.

    Essentially, i use Parts only for Construction divisions and exporting to Navisworks.

    Would the join tool be a good tool to reverse creation of parts from a group?

    Not at all.

    Why don't you show us what you are trying to model instead of suggesting tools to use?
