Insert A Part Into Another Part In Context Of An Assembly?

Question asked by Jason Warnke on Mar 20, 2020

Is there an easy way to insert a part into another part in context of an assembly relation between the two? 

When I work with customer math data I often have to cut surfaces to conform to product contours; usually i'll save the related pieces of the pertinent product/s as my part file and then model a new part around that, then combine-subtract away the product to get the cut I want.

Seems like there should be a way though to do something similar in the even you have an existing part (a block lets say) and a newly added product piece with an irregular shape that needs to be nested in the existing block.
