I am working on building a parts library of our catalog as we work towards transitioning to PDM. One of our product lines is linear actuators that can be any length. I am trying to figure out how to put these into our parts library such that they can be used in larger designs and reference back to the part library without needing configurations for each possibly length, since having so many configurations crashes PDM. Right now my best idea would have us adding a new configuration each time a project requires one, but that's not exactly future proof depending on how many we need long term. Any other thoughts?
