Changing Dimensions by Configuration

If a part has several configurations, you can decide whether changes to a dimension will affect one configuration, all configurations, or selected configurations.

To specify configurations affected by a change in dimensions:

  1. Select the Dimensions View dimensions_view_icon in the Equations dialog box.
  2. Edit the Value/Equations field for the dimension.

    If the dimension applies to more than one configuration, a configuration icon configure.png appears in the column.

  3. From the flyout menu, select from the following choices:
    • This Configuration
    • All Configurations
    • Specify Configurations
  4. Click OK to close the dialog box.
