When generating models using OnDemand (Real Time Preview) there is a known issue where:

Having more than one subassembly that share identical parts may result in a mismatch of part geometry across the subassemblies.

The issue can be avoided by giving each part generated a unique file name within your DriveWorks rules.

The preview issue may also resolve if you reload the assembly. With the OnDemand model active, from the SOLIDWORKS menu, click:

  1. File>Reload
  2. Click the Show References button and deselect any models that do not require to be reloaded.
  3. Click OK
  4. Click OK/Rebuild on any confirmation dialogs that appear
In certain circumstances the above steps may need repeating.
