Alternate configurations within assemblies

Question asked by Trevor Sheen on Mar 3, 2015

Is there a way to show an assembly in two alternate configurations?

 

I have a tool assembly which I would like to display in an open and closed state by selecting different configurations which I can use in a drawing.

 

However, when I create two different configurations and adjust the mate distances, the mates update in both configurations, ideally I would like to create one configuration with mates set to 0mm (for closed position) and another configuration with mates set to their required distance (for open position).
