An entity instance is the representation of a particular entity. The archetype/instance pattern occurs when one entity tracks occurrences of another entity. A common example is a relationship between CLASS and SECTION, where the actual occurrence of a class happens when students register for a SECTION of that CLASS.

An Archetype Entity is based on a regular Entity and specifies individual parameter values for that Entity. If the value of an Archetype parameter is changed, all instances of that Archetype in the scene will be updated automatically.
