I believe that most companies use tabled drawings to handle part drawings. And for Assembly drawings, SolidWorks BOMs can show multiple configurations. If you don't like that, you could always add multiple sheets. I don't see a need for configured drawings in regards to your post.
What are these tabled drawings? I have figured out how to change configurations in the BOM and views, but often it breaks a lot of the links to balloons and dimensions (especially in weldments). The most robust way I have found is to have a separate drawing for each configuration. Unfortunately this creates a lot of redundant prints that don't automatically update when a shared component gets adjusted.
Do you know of a better way?
