Showing SolidWorks Configurations?

Question asked by Gabriel Mazzitelli on Aug 16, 2018

Has anyone discovered a way to easily import multiple SolidWorks configurations into Visualize? I have assemblies where one specific part comes in a few different versions. I want to ideally be able to easily choose which part to show without having to create completely different Visualize projects.

 

As far as I can tell, the configurations in Visualize are more for setting different material/lighting/etc... rather than different parts. When exporting a SolidWorks file with multiple configurations into Visualize it only imports the current configuration you are using. I was able to sometimes get parts in other configurations to show in Visualize by saving the SolidWorks file (updating visualize) while in each configuration. Then in Visualize I could set each the visibility of each part in different configurations. However, this quickly gets very messy when attempting to update the Visualize project after making changes in SolidWorks.

 

Also, after renaming some Visualize projects they have lost the link to their respective SolidWorks file. Is there a way to link them together again?

 

Thanks
