I'm new to Inventor and still trying to learn how to use it. I created a part (a simple extrusion of a 2"x2" square) that I plan to use in the assembly many times with differing lengths for framing purposes. I named the extrusion length parameter "len".
In the assembly view, I have 2 instances of my part. If I double click one (change to edit mode) and use the manage parameters button to change the length of one of them, the length of the other instance changes as well. Is there any way to change the parameter for only a single component instance?
Alternatively, is there a better way to manage a group of many parts that only vary in a single parameter than having many part files?
