Instance Bodies...

Has anyone here ever heard of Instance and prototype bodies? If so what exactly are they?

Re: Instance Bodies...

If you go to the NX help file -> programming tools -> SNAP -> SNAP getting started guide there is a chapter on assemblies that has a good description of assemblies, prototypes, components, instances, etc.


The short version is: when you start a new file and create a model in it, that is the prototype. You can add this model to an assembly as a component; in fact, you can add multiple copies of this model to the assembly. Each body in the assembly is an independent copy (instance) of the model (prototype).
