  • The components are displayed under the parent system name you create in the 2D environment in the 3D Workspace Explorer.

  • Do not delete all the components under the parent system, you must leave at least one component undeleted to see the changes made in the 2D environment. For example, if you delete all the objects under a parent system in the 2D environment, the changes will not be reflected in 3D environment. In a 3D environment, the parent system must always have at least one object.

  • The Place Belt Components command supports the Add, Modify, and Delete modes only when you have at least one object left under the parent system.

  • To delete a parent system, you must delete the parent system in the 3D environment. Then, the changes are reflected in the 2D environment.
