I'm new to the 'top down' design method, and have a question about how configurations are handled. We produce products where there are several sizes produced - essentially scale versions of each other. Currently, I am using a bottom up approach where each assembly, and parts has multiple configurations (one for each product size). My drawings are tabulated with as many as 30 p/n's, that are linked to the design tables.
I can see how I can create an assembly sketch that drives my design, and how I can have multiple configurations in this assembly. Additionally I can see how it is possible to create subassemblies that have multiple configurations. But how do I link the two parametrically? An example would be highly appreciated.
