Saving Configurations to SOLIDWORKS Composer Files

If a SOLIDWORKS part or assembly file has multiple configurations, when you save the file as a Composer file, you can choose which configuration to save to the Composer file.

You can save only one configuration to the Composer file.

To choose a configuration to save to a Composer file:

  1. Open a part or assembly with multiple configurations and click Save As (Standard toolbar) or File > Save As.
  2. Optional: 3DEXPERIENCE Users: If the Save As New dialog box appears, click Save to This PC.
  3. In the dialog box, in Save as type, select SOLIDWORKS Composer (*.smg) and click Save.
  4. In the Save Configurations to SOLIDWORKS Composer file dialog box, select an option:
    • Current Configuration. Saves the active configuration with the Composer file.
    • Selected Configuration. From the list, select a configuration to save with the Composer file.
  5. Click OK.
