Derive Assembly Instances into Part Studio
When designing weldments, I always make the weldment an assembly. This way, when I create a drawing, I can have the BOM for the weldment show up on the drawing. When using my weldment in a higher level assembly, I would prefer my weldment to show as one part. I may also want to add fillets or chamfers for a visual representation of the welds. If I do this now, I have to be careful that the assembly weldment and the part weldment are in agreement. If I could derive the parts in the weldment assembly into a part studio, I could boolean them, ensuring consistent geometry.
