Insert driver block assembly into a new assembly?

I've created a furniture item inside a driver block and I would like to insert it "as is" into a new document without having to create a new block to insert it in? It imports into the new document fine if I create a block to insert it into, but I can not import it if there is not block.

Re: Drive Blocks?

Thanks, guys for taking a look at the files. That the molding was pretty funky with missing driver elements and odd CS. So I tried a few other moldings some worked and some didn't so I know the issue is with the extruded molding, I created a new molding and it worked fine. RaudMees, you mentioned pa...

When I create a driver block and add a few components to it and insert into a new block it always works. But when I start adding drivers to components, translations and repeat part function they always fail when I try to insert the driver block into a new document block. What could cause that and ca...

Re: BOM Examples?

Thank you for the input.

I'm trying to create a custom template and all the dimensions are in metric, how would I change that to standard?
