Q - question

How to move a part from parent assembly to existing subassembly?

A - answer To transfer (demote) Inventor parts and components in the hierarchy of subassemblies, you can use mouse dragging in the assembly tree browser. To demote a part to a new subassembly, use the standard Demote function (Tab). You can also mouse-drag elements in the opposite way - up the tree, to "superassemblies".

If you need to demote a Frame Generator component, right-click on it in the assembly tree and select Component > Demote Frame Generator Components. In the "Create In-Place Component" dialog then enter the name of the existing subassembly. The component will be included into it.
