Title: SolidWorks Live Linking with duplicate geometry/patterns in KeyShot 6
Post by: keithyzq on January 31, 2017, 10:28:59 am
Hi there,

I often create a single part in SolidWorks, export it to Keyshot, and then duplicate/pattern and rearrange to compose my shot. When I do this, the live linking only works with the original copy. Duplicates fail to update.

Is there a way to make the duplicates update as well? Is there an alternative workflow that would allow me to accomplish this?

This is resolved in KeyShot 6.3. Please make sure to update to the latest version.

I'm running Keyshot version 6.3.19, and still having that issue. Perhaps the SW version is the problem? I'm running SW 2017.

I just tested with SW 2017, KeyShot 6.3.23 and KeyShot SW plugin 1.1 and the pattern updated just fine. Please make sure you are running plugin 1.1
