Hello ALL ,
I would like to know that, can we save each configuration as a individual part file.
for ex. if a part has total five configurations, can each configuration be saved as seperate part ( means total 5 parts).
i attached sample part also.
DocExport by Lenny: Assists user in exporting selected SolidWorks model configurations or SolidWorks drawing sheets to different file types. This is useful when you need to separate many configurations into individual files of another file type for a vendor to use/reference.
ConfigRipper by Jeff: Copies all of a model's configurations to their own individual files. The new files will have the same name as their source configuration in the original model.
Thanks a lot @ Richard Wehmeyer .....it worked like a butter..
I am also having trouble figuring out how to run this macro. I have never used them before.
I downloaded it to my desktop, then opened the file I want to separate the configurations out of, clicked Tools, Macro, Run, than navigated to the downloaded file, and nothing happens.
I downloaded the video in this post, but just get a still when I try to watch it.
Any help would be appreciated.
Are you looking to export them a separate part files OR different format? Basically when you run the macro, you might have to press the Alt + Tab key to see the userform and select options.
Here is another macro that export configurations as SW model files Re: How to save out configurations as parts
Attached is a quick video showing using both the macros. You can also run the macro using Tools > Macro > Run Or assign a shortcut button/key to it.
I am seeing the same issue. Very large and random file sizes for a root part that was only a couple hundred K.
save configurations as individual parts (Problem)
Look at this thread
Hope all is well! We are looking for a macro, and I thought this was going to the answer, however it does not quite work how we need.
Do you know of a macro that will export configurations to PART files, from an Assy with multiple configs (none derived).
Shawn, do you mean saving and assy as part file (of course each config as separate file)?
Yes exactly - we have an assy that has (45) configurations.....we need a macro to save out each config as a seperate part file
