Is it possible to "Replace" a part in an assembly in only specified configurations?
Take a look at this similar thread...
Replace a component in just one configuration?
unfortunately, this does not help at all. This part is the base part of my assembly. A new configuration has come out, and it's a slightly shorter part, yet containing all the same screw holes (46) and mating to all of the same parts. Short of coping the exact same assembly and the replacing and maintaining 2 separate assembly files, or removing the part, inserting the new one, and redoing all of the mates (hundred of them), I am not sure what to do. I am not sure why Solidworks just won't let you replace for selected configurations.
