What does it mean to Promote and object?

Like a component or an object?

Also what does it mean to promote a part_occurence to an instance?

Currently i am aware of only one Promote feature in NX:

  • "Promote" in Modeling and CAE
    This copies the body from a component to the level of the assembly (similar to a Wave Link).
    At the same time the original component is hidden.
    You can now edit the geometry at assembly level.
    It will NOT edit the component though.

I am not sure what else you are looking for.

"Promote" is also used behind the scenes if you use the "assembly cut" command. I've not checked, but promote is probably also used in the "hole series" command, if you create a hole through multiple components at the assembly level.
