Conditions Limiting the Use of Configurable Equations

For files created with SolidWorks version 2013 or earlier, you can use configurable equations unless:
  • The model has design tables.
  • One or more equations are suppressed in one of the configurations.
  • The model has two or more equations with the same name, for example D2@Sketch1.

To use configurable equations with one of these existing files:

  1. Remove conflicts by performing the following actions:
    • Delete design tables.
    • Remove suppressed equations.
    • Ensure that each equation has a unique name.
  2. Save the file with SolidWorks version 2014 or later, and re-open the file.
