    Drawing configuration

    Lukasz Stanislawski

      Hi,

      I have assembly which contains few configurations (cabinet with different drawers and door setups). I would like to create a drawing for each individual configuration and

      add annotations, dimensions etc. to each configuration.

      Example:

      I open config 1 model. I open drawing which shows our cabinet with config1 setup of drawers and doors.

      I open config 2 model and I can open drawing with config2 without messing dimensions and annotations.

       

      I hope it's clear. In other words I have few configurations and I'd like to have drawing for each config. Because now whenever I open config1 - drawing might have config2 reference and when I change it manually to config1 all dimensions and annotations from config2 are still there.

       

      Possible or not?

          Not with the workflow you're describing.  You'll need to have a separate drawing (or at least separate drawing views or sheets in the same drawing) for each configuration, one representing each configuration.  Add dimensions and notes to each as appropriate.
