Hi all. I work in the SOLIDWORKS Product Definition team, primarily focusing on assemblies. We are aware that many users have been asking for a way to automatically update SpeedPak configurations whenever the parent configuration changes (SPR 522357). Right now it's necessary to manually update out-of-date SpeedPak configurations.
There would likely be some performance overhead in keeping a SpeedPak configuration up-to-date automatically, so we are exploring various methods to do this efficiently.
Question - which of the following describes your SpeedPak update requirements?
I need all SpeedPak configurations in all assemblies to be kept up-to-date automatically.
I only need some SpeedPak configurations to be kept up-to-date automatically.
I prefer to manually update my SpeedPak configurations.
Wait, I've got another idea...
Please let me know your choice below - it would also be great if you could explain your reasoning. Your feedback is valuable to us, so thanks for your time!
because in SWX (as in other common 3D CAD systems) each and every object / sketch / feature / Body / file has a lot of "intelligence" in it and is referenced to lots of other objects / sketches / features / bodies / files, and all of them are updated automatically. so, users with a real need of performance are happy to be able to update these SpeedPaks manually to cut off he process of CPU nightmare.
