Drawing View - Wrong Configuration/State

Question asked by James Han on Feb 5, 2013
Latest reply on Feb 13, 2013 by James Han

This is a part of our design automation project. The files are generated and when first opened, should show the correct views depending on what configuration they are set to show as.


I have a part that has a configuration with a notch on the ends and another configuration without notches.


* I open the drawing and the drawing view shows the part with the notches on the ends. I need the drawing to show the part without notches. The drawing view itself has the configuration set correctly upon opening the file, however, it shows the alternate configuration. Rebuilding the drawing (CTRL+Q) as soon as I open the drawing does nothing. PICTURE ATTACHED (1)

* Clicking on the part itself shows a green outline of the part, the way it is supposed to be shown (without notches). PICTURE ATTACHED (2)

* Changing configurations works correctly and shows the part with notches. Changing the configuration back to the original configuration displays the correct part (without notches). PICTURE ATTACHED (3)


I figure this is a problem with SolidWorks and not a part of our design automation, although the automation program is what changes the designated configuration that the drawing view is set at, but if SolidWorks refreshed its drawings correctly, this problem should not be an issue.


Any ideas on solving, mitigating, or working around this problem would be greatly appreciated.
