    How to create various positions of large assemblies in configurations?

    Al Beau

      Hello, I'm trying to create various positions for a solidworks drawing and I'm not sure what to do.

      I would like to create machine position 1, 2, 3 ect... This includes roll pitch yaw rotations and xyz translations.


      I tried creating new configurations that suppress new features and mates and new components, but I'm not sure how to get the position of my assembly to stay per configuration. I tried doing lock mates for each configuration but the system errors out. I tried using distance mates but it seems overly complicated of setting 6 mates per picture.


      Is there an easy solution to get different positions per configuration for my drawings?
