NX 11 INSTANCES

Question is, is there any way to move an INSTANCE into a different dropdown program folder without moving the original but still be linked with the original? What I’m wanting to do is:

-take the original tool path

-create an instance (mirror through plane)

-rotate the instance by whatever degree I need

-put it into a different location than the original

-post out the originals as one program

-post out the instances as another program

 

I’m wanting it to stay linked to the original that way if I make a change it will also change the instance toolpath.

Do you know any other way to copy a toolpath and keep it associated with the original?

Paste with reference will do what you are asking but I've not been completely stoked with its results. It needs more development. That being said I have a lot of horizontal parts using it running....
