On the screen, you can see a simple door handle we will be using to explore how to create these features. From the look of the parts in the graphics window, they look no different than any other part. Where they differ is how they were created and how they can change.

The plate itself includes an iFeature that defines the whole pattern, which the handle will connect to. The handle itself is the actual iPart. In the browser, you can see that the icon is slightly different than anything we've seen up to this point in the course. It's a small part icon with a table on it, because this part, and any iPart, is essentially a table-driven part. If we expand th...
