Create a Custom Part

1. Create Custom Component


A custom part can be created from an existing part. (See Tutorial 6 Create Part). The custom part can then be copied as a single item or have intelligence added to it. (See Tutorial 8 Add Intelligence to a Custom Part). Create the required part manually. (See Tutorial 6 Create Part). Now we can define the Custom Part. This is done by using the Define Custom Component command located in the Detailing pull down menu.

Select the Define Custom Component command.
