I am not experienced with AltReps as of yet, and I have a quesion.
If using AltRep to model alternative states of parts at different levels of the assembly, what is really the best pracitce? I came up myself with the following scheme. Let's assume I have a part that looks different as a piece part, and at the assembly level. Might be some bending or you name it. I see that I can use AltRep the following way:
|___ Part (suppressed)
|___ Part altrep
This way, I can only see altrep at the assembly level, and weight along with other geometric properties will be calculated alright. Higher levels of assembly would also display everything correctly.
This seems to be very useful for complex cases when parts are changes substantially at the different levels and might even change many times - I came across cases like this one.
Would you call this scenario a good practice to use AltRep? Or maybe some better ways exist?
