I have a part file with several configurations in it. I want to take one of those configs and copy it to a different part file. Does anyone know if this is possible? How would I go about it?
Unless the part files have identical sketch names, dimension names, feature names, etc, copying a config will not work.
The best way I can think of to do that would be to create a design table in the
one then save it out of solidworks in Excel. Then insert it into the other part.
I have never done a design table. I will give it a try.
Look them up in the help file. You can automatically create one.
Then once you have one created, select the "Opnein the design table up in s seperate window"
and you get all of the Excel functionality.
Are you starting a brand new part file for the copied config? If yes, file>save as, and create a new part. Then delete all the configs you don't want in the new part.
Is it that simple?
No I am not starting a new part file, I have two part files and each of them has configurations that I need, and I wanted to combine them.
