Embedded Components and Simplified Representations
Part Level Simplified Representations
User defined simplified representations in parts are lost during an embed operation. When you embed a part with a user-defined simplified representation, the part is embedded as a copy of the master representation. You cannot create a simplified representation for an embedded part.
Assembly Level Simplified Representations
Simplified representations of components and substituted components are retrieved in the Master representation, on-demand, when they are embedded or extracted. When the components selected to embed include excluded or legacy representations, and your on-demand settings are set to Disable and do not retrieve the master representation, embedding these components is disabled.
An embedded model,
Cannot be substituted by Family Table member
Cannot be substituted by Interchange member.
Cannot be set to part level simplified representation. (See above)
Can be substituted by envelope
