The company I work for outsources the manufacture a small hydraulic brake cylinder, and has recently switched suppliers for a number of reasons. I am trying to use Inventor to keep track of the subtle differences between the "new" and "old" cylinder. Major differences are as follows:
Different rod seals (i.e. different parts depending on rev level)
Housing machined differently (i.e. revolve sketch changes based on rev level)
Additional bronze bushing in "new" cylinder.
I'm not familiar with the representations that are allowed in Inventor, and before I get too far down the wrong path, I was hoping to get some input as to the possible best approach to this "problem".
Ideally I would want to keep the data for each (new/old) cylinder in the same [.iam] file and have the drawing file show both representations.
