I have a master assembly which contains several components, one of which is a large sub-assembly (lets call it "B").
Within the master assembly I can make configurations where some of these components may be suppressed, including B.
However, I can not create a configuration where B is unsuppressed, but some of its components are suppressed.
In other words, in a top level assembly it seems that as far as configurations are concerned you can only toggle suppression states (selectively per configuration) on top level components, no deeper. I hope I have explained this so it makes sense.
Is this true?
Yes, I know I can create configurations within B and then use those configurations within my master assembly but I would prefer not to if I can avoid it.
Also, I am aware of display states, but as far as I know display states can not suppress/unsupress parts.
I need the parts to be suppress/unsuppressed as opposed to hidden so that it give correct BOM quantities in the various configurations.
thanks for any pointers
