Add part to studio or assembly

joshua_foxworthjoshua_foxworth Member, Developers Posts: 19
I have a partner platform where the user will be able to copy a part from one document to an assembly in another. I can't quite seem to figure out the correct process to do this through the APIs. Is this just adding a feature?

    You can just copy the part to clipboard and paste tab where the assembly file is located and then insert the part.

    Do you want the assembly reference to be made to the original part (parametrically), or do you want to copy the part studio into another document and not have the new update with the old?

    because you're accessing another document to a part, you have to change the 'w' in the address to a 'v' and get the version id.

    you can not access work spaces in other documents in either the UI or the API.

    The api calls work the same as 'w' or 'v', just get the correct version id for the part studio/part if calling from another document.
