Product interface in WAVE linking

What is the point of define product interface? Why is not all geometry available to be linked in other parts?

As to whether geometry is selectable for WAVE linking or not depends on the preference you (or your company administrator) has set in Customer Defaults. In Assemblies-General-Product Interface you can choose Interpart Linking allow method. Either any geometry, or just product interface geometry or warning if user selects geometry that is not a product interface.

 

It can be useful for the author of the data to control what other people can link to. This reduces the chance of the wrong geometry being selected.

Thank you Steven. I didnt remember I can change that preference. Now I can see the point of restrict the wave link available geometry.
