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.
