Creating a SpeedPak from a Parent Assembly

You can create SpeedPak configurations for subassemblies from within a parent assembly. You can choose to include only graphics, or include mated faces, edges, and points as resolved geometry.

To create a SpeedPak:

  1. In an assembly, select one or more subassemblies.
  2. Right-click and click SpeedPak Options.
  3. Click one of the following:
    Option Description
    Create Mated SpeedPak Includes mated faces, edges, and points as resolved geometry, which allows you to create other mates to those entities. Entities included as resolved geometry include entities of the subassembly that mate to other components in the open parent assembly or to the open parent assembly itself.
    Create Graphics SpeedPak Lets you see graphics for the subassembly but does not include any resolved geometry, which yields more performance improvement.

    A SpeedPak configuration is created for the active configuration of the subassembly. If the subassembly is a top-level subassembly, then the SpeedPak configuration becomes the active configuration used by the parent assembly.
