Is it possible to add a part to an idw but not the assembly it is derived from?

I am currently putting together a DPD of a through wall lock assembly. i have been asked to show the through wall liner with the drawing however these are two different assembly models and the model that they are both on together is a large one so makeing a new level of detail on that model would be a pain. Basicly what im asking is, is there a way to add a part or another assembly just to a drawing not changing the assembly the drawing is derived from???

P.S - The liner can be added to the through wall lock assembly model becasue it would have too many knock on affects within company.

Rename the part that you have Derived the original from.

Maybe add it to the assembly as a reference component?

Demoting could be an option !
Or work with visibility ( that you turn on or off ) of the part it is derived from.
