Is it possible to import only composite parts in an Assembly using the API

timo_schmidtimo_schmid Member Posts: 36 EDU
When importing part studios into assemblies there is an otpion to only include Composite parts.
Is it possible to also do this using the API (Create assembly instance) call?
Thanks for your help,

    With the latest release (1.114) we've released a body field with the insertTransformedInstances that that allows one to specify part types to include when importing parts from a PS. The default is just regular parts. Here is the documentation: (Body) {String[]} [transformGroups.0.instances.0.includePartTypes="PARTS"] The part types to include. Used only if "isWholePartStudio" is "true". Can be: {"PARTS", "SKETCHES","SURFACES","FLATTENED_PARTS", "COMPOSITE_PARTS", "PART_STUDIOS", "WIRES", "UNKNOWN"}.
