User-Defined Feature (UDF) Replacement Improvements

You can replace a UDF with a Family Table instance and preserve the common IDs of those objects included in the UDFs. This ability results in successful feature regeneration downstream.

Benefits and Description

You can easily replace a UDF with a Family Table instance by right-clicking the group and selecting Replace. A dialog box opens from which you can choose to select a Family Table instance or manually select a UDF. After you select a replacement, Pro/ENGINEER tries to preserve the IDs for all consistent features and geometry so that downstream features successfully regenerate and update. Features can be excluded in the UDF instance, but the IDs of features in the originally placed UDF are preserved.
