Configurations allow you to create multiple variations of a part or
assembly model within a single document. Configurations provide a convenient
way to develop and manage families of models with different dimensions,
components, or other parameters.
To create a configuration, you specify a name and properties, then you
modify the model to create the design variations you want.
documents, configurations allow you to create families of parts with different
dimensions, features, and properties, including custom properties.
documents, configurations allow you to create:
simplified versions of the design by suppressing
families of assemblies with different configurations
of the components, different parameters for assembly features, different
dimensions, or configuration-specific custom properties.
documents, you can display views of the configurations you create in part
and assembly documents.
You can create configurations using any of the following methods:
Custom properties created in design tables
or the Modify Configurations dialog
box are automatically added to the Configuration Specific tab in the
Summary Information dialog box.
