How to relink a broken derived part?

Hi,

I created a derived part and I broken the link with its parent. Is there a way to relink the two parts?

Autodesk Inventor 2011

 

Thanks in advance.

Next time Suppress Link rather than Break Link.

I think once its broke... its broke. No way to get it back.  How bad would it be to recreate it?

You might try opening an old version from before you broke the link.

Seriously? Is this still true in Inventor 2015?

I haven't checked - but I sure hope so.

I expect Break Link to do exactly what it says.

Hi,

 

Sorry, I should have been more clear.

 

Yes, break link should do as expected. I was hoping that in 2015 we might have a better way to relink to a part file.
