Question from Anonymous: Is this functionality included in the most basic package?
Answer: In the current and most recent package configurations it is. However, there are older packages that this is not included in. In that case you could upgrade your packages or simply add the Flexible Modeling Extension to one of your old packages.
Question from Brent: When you use flexible modeling, how does that affect drawing definition?
Answer: In the case of moving the rib at the angle, you would easily show the dim for the flex move feature (the 11 degree dim).

Answer: It updates automatically.
Question from Martinez: Can flexible modeling work with creating different simp reps?
