Hello, I've been working on using DriveWorksXpress to automate our process of model creation.

I'm having a problem with suppressing or unsuppressing individual instances of a part / sub-assembly or mates pertaining to differnt configurations of the same part.


My example would be I have a basic truck body platform and it has stirrup steps on the sides and I want to be able

to specify if it's on the right and/or left side or even no step.


So far I can suppress or unsuppress the file itself by changing the file name rule.


Typically I would put two copys of the step, one on each side and suppress or unsupress them individually as needed in the assembly.
