Smart Connectors

Integrate the Smart Connector functionality found in Factory Design Suite into ETO. The ETO projects that I work on have many configured machines inside a main assembly. To have the ability to configure a machine, drag the machine onto the model window and then have it attach to a chosen piece of geometry would be a great addition to the user experience.

Do you really want the "smart connector" behavior in ETO, or would you rather have ETO behavior in FDS?  Or some combination?  


What is the "deployment environment" ... Inventor, InventorOEM-based app, FDS, or something else?
