iFeature or punch tool?

I can create an iFeature from a sketched shape and use the iFeature to
create a Punch Tool, correct? Then I can use the punch tool, to place a
cutout feature in a sheet metal part. I can not use a table-driven iFeature
to create a Punch tool. Therefore, I must create a Punch tool for each size
shape that is placed on the sheet metal part, correct? Can I just you the
iFeatures to place the cutouts, because I can just change sizes. If so, why
do I need Punch tools?
Thanks, Bob

Have you tried placing one yet? You can adjust what ever features the
designer allows you to when he creates it. And you can go back and edit it
at a later time and adjust also.
