Is this is a configuration?

I'm working on a playground climbing frame and I've got to create a set of drawings that show all the components and distances to set the items.


Due to the fact that it's a playground there is a lot of random spacing of elements and hardly any of them fall parallel to the Front / Top / Right planes, so when creating Drawing Views, I'm struggling to get the views that I want.


I thought it would be quite a nice idea to create different configuartions of the playframe, with only one major component visible at each configuration and then using Relative View and two planes to create nice views of the different elements.


However, I've created a configuration and then hidden all the parts that I don't want visible, but when I go to activate the default or another configuration, it's not showing the correct components. Am I going around this the wrong way? I've read up on the Configurations help section in Solidworks but I can't really get anything out of it.


If anyone has any other thought on this, it'd be much appreciated.


With thanks,
