custom shapes

I made my first custom shape and successfully published it into the Content Centre in my custom section.I have another 10 sizes of the same shape all increasing in size by 5mm.

1. Do i have to create the 10 various sizes individually and publish each 1 to the Content Centre 1 at a time or is there a simpler and quicker way to publish the 10 sizes using the first shape i created?


Best Regards

I should have mentioned that these will be used in the Frame Generator

You need to generate the iparts from the factory file first before you can publish them.

If you open your factory file up and RC and select all of the iparts in the list in the model tree select generate files.

Then you should be able to publish them all at once.
