Benefits and Description

Autodesk Inventor users are now able to Modify/Add/Revise/Delete Inventor iPart family table instances without checking out the entire family table.

For family tables containing a large number of instances, this enables more efficient management of those family tables by allowing the iPart member to be treated as independent business objects, and also allows the creation of instances as they are used, rather than forcing creation of all instances.

For more information, refer to the help center installed with the Windchill Workgroup Manager client:
