Inventor 6 "Test Toolbars"

Has anyone enabled the test toolbars in Inventor 6? In prior releases, I've
seen an actual new toolbar (in the assembly environment, if I'm not
mistaken). After enabling it in Inventor 6, I didn't see another toolbar,
but after a while, I did finally see something new. Right-clicking on a
component in an assembly has another option - Segmentation, which can be set
to Fully Loaded or Unloaded. I haven't had the opportunity to really play
with this, but could it improve large-assembly performance by letting the
user manually load or unload data?

If this worked it would be in the product. These are unsupported tools
that may be toxic in your production environment.

Did I just stumble upon the Area 51 of Inventor? Are Autodesk's Men In
Black going to pay me a visit tonight? They're going to use that
mind-erasing pen of theirs on me, aren't they?

Anyone have Mulder's phone number handy?

There have been test toolbars in IV for most releases. As Kevin said
however a lot of the tools are not ready for prime time and can be
dangerous. I know I melted down an assembly back in R3 or 4 using some of
these tools...
