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,

 

Jess
