How do I force certain parts to always load resolved?

Hello Everyone,

 

I am trying to figure out how to set certain components to always load resolved.  My company generates certain assemblies where SolidWorks automatically loads certain components, or components of Sub Assemblies as lightweight.  The problem is that some models are configured assemblies of surface body parts from our vendors refuse to balloon as anything but * in drawings.  If I resolve the configured assembly and the surface body part, I am able to balloon the item.

 

Before you ask why I setup the model that way, it was so I could use these purchased parts in routing.

 

What I would like to do is make the surface body parts so that they will always resolve, but allow other components to load lightweight.  I have a strong feeling that i have done that before but cannot remember how to accomplish that.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you.
