We are moving to Solidworks and I am trying to understand how design tables function. We use many different cartridge heaters in our applications. Same type of cartridge heater but with different diameters, different lengths, non-stick coating, some with overbraid, some without, etc.... How is the best way to handle parts like this? We have part numbers for each scenario. It would be nice to have one model with a design table containing all configurations. We may have as many as 2 to 3 hundred different configurations, so if I list them by part number then I will have to scroll down through the table until I find the right discription to locate a particle part number. Is there a way to catagorize these to make them easier to find? In Pro-e when you find the right description in the table you can right click on it and tell it to open that particular configuration. I dont think solidworks does this. Does it?
