Hi guy...

I have a assembly with some 20 component and where 3 component s are having their own family table...And the assembly is controlled using layout.

Since all the dimension are controlled by layout when there is a new variant for the family table member i use instantiate in the assembly program....

The problem arises here....When i click instantiate it open a window prompting for instants new name.....And If i don't want to create instance for a certain component i was not able to avoid the instance creation using this method...

And also it is creating a instance for the assembly itself...

Is there a way to avoid this problem......

I don't want to open their respective parts and do the instantiate on their respective model.....Please advice...

Re: Pro/Program

You should use lookup instance function.

Hello andy,

I tried that too....

When i use lookup inst function and replace the component everything's fine...except...

when i hit instantiate....the function creates a sub family table for that particular components instance....

And also that assembly level amily table is still ther which i don't want....
