Configurations

Hello,

I was wondering it is possible to make something like a configuration choose menu in SolidWorks.

I have created a assembly which has some configurations, but this assembly consists of other smaller assemblies and parts that also have their own configurations.

 

For example (to make it a bit more clear) my end assembly contains 2 configurations:

- An assembly of a large box with 2 doors (1 on the front and 1 on the back)

- And an assembly of the same box but than smaller also with 2 doors (1 on the front and 1 on the back) (suppresed when the other configuration is chosen)

 

These assemblies contains also configurations:

The assembly of the large box with 2 doors (1 on the front and 1 on the back) has 2 configurations:

- The door can open inside

- The door can open outside

 

The door in this assembly is a part and also contains configurations:

For example:

- The door contains a round hole in it

- The door contains a square hole in it

 

In the final assembly i want to open a menu where the user of the product is able to assemble his own product by choosing the right configurations.

 

Is there a way to combine all these configurations into 1 menu in the final assembly, I know it maybe could be done with a design table in MS Excel, but I prefer another method?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Bryan
