Specifying Component Configurations in an Assembly

If a component (either an individual part or a subassembly) has more than one configuration, you can specify which configuration to use for each instance in the assembly.

You can specify which configuration to use for several components at a time, if the components have configurations with the same name.

You can also specify certain configuration-specific properties for the component.

To specify component configurations and configuration-specific properties:

  1. Right-click the component and select Component Properties .
    To specify configurations for more than one component, hold down Ctrl and select the components, then right-click and select Component Properties . Properties that are common to all the selected components appear in the dialog box.
  2. Set options in the Component Properties dialog box, then click OK.
You can also right-click a component and select Configure component to configure the component configuration.
