How to "configure" a sketch

Question asked by Bob Jones on Sep 15, 2011

I have a sketch that is used in a sweep as a path. The cross section is just a rectangle and the path sketch is just an "S". The sweep is used in several other features down the tree such as a linear pattern and circular pattern as well as some fillets and such.

 

Now I want to be able to change the sketch for the path from an S into a straight light. This shouldn't in any way effect the features further down the line. I need to "configure" the sketch, or rather use one or the other depending on the configuration.

 

The reason I would like to do this is that I do not want to duplicate all the features applied to the sweep since it is unecessary. I cannot dimension the "S" since it is a spline(AFAIK).

 

Is this possible?

 

What I would really like to do is be able to suppress/unsuppress the line segments in the sketch used for the sweep path. Or toggle(in the DT) between two sweep paths.
