    In Navigator>External Data, select the name of the model file

    Right click and choose Synchronise From

    Browse and select the updated model file

    Modify import settings if desired 

    Results will be reported 

    For objects that maintained the original GUID, the resources will remain assigned to the tasks

    To find new objects that need to be assigned to tasks, drag the focus time to the start of the project 


    In Synchro, go to Help>Search and search for "Synchronising FROM a 3D Graphics File" to see step by step directions with images and descriptions of the available settings.

    I have tried to update the model through the external data method shown above. However I lose 3D resources in the process. Is there a way to prevent this please.
