This is not normal to manufacturing so why?

This is not normal for manufacturing, the almighty GOD says.

Maybe there are some things in manufacturing that you dont understand yet

so don't be so quick to decide what is needed and what is not.

This is what I'm asking for at every Inventor update in the last years.

Make it available in just an IAM also please.  We have instances where we have a blank purchased (Pre cut to length) then pull it into an IAM and machine it (Not a weldment). Model it this way so the BOM is set up correctly to carry over to vault items.

I also need to add a thread feature in a weldment as well as as adding it to a purchased part. This is a VERY COMMON machining function and needs to be addressed.
