Derived Parts

Greetings all!!


So, in Inventor I made TONS of derived parts, as we used forgings, castings, etc.. to then make weldments, rough-out parts, and/or finish machined parts, all derived...sometimes 3 or 4 parts total before you get to the final machining or plating processes....


I've looked in SW and can find nothing (that I understand at least) on how to take another part (say a blank, or casting) and use it as the base part for my new part...e.g., bring in said casting or blank and use to make new part....


Cheers and thanks in advance!!


Happy Friday,
