Generating Configuration Data

You can generate full data sets for one or more configurations without activating each configuration individually.

To generate full data sets, do one of the following:

  • In the ConfigurationManager, right-click one or more configurations and click Add Rebuild/Save Mark.
  • At the top of the ConfigurationManager or FeatureManager design tree, right-click the model name, click Rebuild/Save Mark, and click one of the following:
    Option Description
    Add Mark for This Configuration Marks the active configuration to have its full data set generated the next time you save the document. Subsequently, the data is rebuilt and saved every time you save the document.
    Add Mark for All Configurations Marks all configurations to have full data sets generated the next time you save the document. Subsequently, the data is rebuilt and saved every time you save the document.
    Add Mark for Specified Configurations Opens the Rebuild and Save Settings dialog box, where you select configurations to mark to have full data sets generated the next time you save the document. Subsequently, the data is rebuilt and saved every time you save the document.

    Also, removes the Rebuild/Save mark cfgmgr_blue_save_disk.png from all other configurations, and changes their icons to cfgmgr_checkmark_gray.gif or cfgmgr_dash_gray.gif (depending on the current state of their configuration data).

    Remove Mark and Purge Data for All Configurations Removes the Rebuild/Save mark cfgmgr_blue_save_disk.png from all configurations including the active configuration, and purges the data for all configurations except the active one.
    When the model is opened in Service Pack 5 of the previous release of SOLIDWORKS:
    • Configurations marked with the Rebuild/Save mark cfgmgr_blue_save_disk.png are available.
    • Configurations without the mark are not available.
