Make a multi part configurator for parts and assemblies like Solidworks.

This would be highly beneficial and I feel a lot of people would use this.



Configurations allow you to create multiple variations of a part or assembly model within a single document. Configurations provide a convenient way to develop and manage families of models with different dimensions, components, or other parameters.

To create a configuration, you specify a name and properties, then you modify the model to create the design variations you want.

  • In part documents, configurations allow you to create families of parts with different dimensions, features, and properties, including custom properties.

  • In assembly documents, configurations allow you to create:

    • simplified versions of the design by suppressing components.

    • families of assemblies with different configurations of the components, different parameters for assembly features, different dimensions, or configuration-specific custom properties.

  • In drawing documents, you can display views of the configurations you create in part and assembly documents.
