Opening Part Configurations in Quick View Mode

When you open a part in Quick view mode, you can specify the configuration to open. You can also do this in eDrawings®.

Before you open a specified configuration in Quick view mode, you need to specify which configurations are available in Quick view mode. Open the part in Resolved mode first to determine which configurations are visible to other users.

To open part configurations in Quick view mode:

  1. Open system_dir:\Users\Public\Public Documents\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS 2019\samples\whatsnew\user interface\jack_parts.sldprt.
  2. In the ConfigurationManager, right-click the following configurations and click Add Display Data Mark:
    • Base
    • Outer
    Base and Outer are marked with icons. The other configuration remains the same.
  3. Save and close the part.
  4. Click Open or File > Open.
  5. In the dialog box:
    1. Select jack_parts.sldprt.
    2. In Mode, select Quick view.
    3. In Configurations, select Outer.
      Only the Base and Outer configurations are available to select.
    4. Click Open.
    The part opens in the Outer configuration in Quick view mode. The Base and Outer configurations are available in the ConfigurationManager.
