Protect a part/assembly for copying

Protect a part/assembly for copying

Currently only a PartLibrary item is protected for copying.

So when you copy an assembly, everything is copied, but not your PartLibrary element, this is shared.

 

You should be able to set such a flag for a part/assembly of your choice.

 

For the moment there's functionality to make a PartLibrary element of your part/assembly.

But after that moment, you can no longer modify it, even not an administrator.

 

Customers often ask this functionality to make "standard parts" or "catalog parts".

They don't want to make a PartLibrary part of it, because these parts can no longer be modified or revised.

And when you make a normal part of it, and store it to MODEL_3D in Model Manager, it can always be copied in your Modeling session, instead of automatically shared.

Even PartLibrary parts should be able to be modified by a user having special privileges ("PartLibrary Admin"). Because company standards, as well as DIN, EN, ISO are always moving.
