Morning all,


While in assembly and looking at my feature manager tree I have a particular part's name or the information that SW is giving me about that part that is confusing me.  As I see it in the essentials book I am borrowing, the component has a number in brackets <#> after its name that indicates the instance.  1 for one of those in the assembly.  2 for two of those in the assembly and so on.  If your instance number is two, shouldn't that mean you have two of those components assembled into the assembly?  I have only one of these parts assembled in and am confused as to why SW is telling me 2 for the instance number.
