after changes are made to the ipart.

I think you can just create a rule to rebuild and trigger it on the "before save event"

You might need to run a rule to "regenerate" the members too but just try this first..


Just paste this in a new rule and try it...

     Appreciate your response and I did try that code yesterday before posting but it did not work. I still have to use my

work around Edit View\Model State\Active Family Member then select which configuation I want in the drawing.

I may not be doing the right thing with the rule. I'm adding the rule to the part file after the fact. The drawing was

already done and I decided to add a radius but it would not change in the drawing. I used rebuild all and regenerate

and it did not update.

Sometimes I run into the same situation. Not often enough as to give it a thorough investigation but. Try to delete the stubborn child :smileyhappy: in a child folder and then re-generate it in a factory.
