Keeping one active configuration

Question asked by Danny Pearson on Mar 27, 2013

Is there a way to make a part open in one specific configuration every time you open the part file?  We are having issues when burning SolidWorks files on our plasma cutter.  The program automatically uses the last saved configuration/active configuration when it goes to burn the part, which causes issues if the wrong configuration is left active.  Some of our people are having difficulty keeping track of multiple parts that require different configurations, especially when there's a lot in one job/assembly.  Their way around it is to create multiple part files for each configuration, instead of just one file with different configurations within it.

 

So basically, if I have a part with configuration "One" and configuration "Two", I want to be able to always open the part in configuration "One".  Possible?
