    Automate creation of part configurations from assembly configurations

    J. Connell

      I have an assembly that uses dimensions in a sketch at the assembly level to drive the dimensions of parts within the assembly. I have multiple configurations of the assembly with the dimensions in the driving assembly sketch changing with each configurations. The problem with this was that drawing views would only update to the active config not the config selected. I found this help article that outlines the problem saying that you need to have a 1-to-1 relation of assembly configs and parts configs (one config in each part for each assembly config). This kind of defeats the purpose of the driving configuration at the assembly level. If I have 10 driven parts with 10 assembly configurations I'm going to have to go manually add 100 different part level configurations. Is there a way to automatically add the needed part configurations?

       

      Thanks for any help!
