One of our VAR team suggested looking at the use of virtual parts. I have tried using them on a welment. A draw backs is I don't seem to be able to do a 'save as copy' for a part that is to remain internally in the assembly.

The advantages I found were that it reduces the number of part files and simplifies naming of parts.

Any further comments on where you have found using virtual parts useful and also its drawbacks.
