Configurations?

I've got a few fixtures to make. All of the features (except one) are identical. On 2 fixtures, it's a hole for a 1/2" dowel. On the third, it's for a 5/8" dowel pin. Do I need to make multiple part files, for each variation, or is there a simpler way?

You can copy and “paste new” your components, then make the hole modification. That would give you multiple components, but not necessarily multiple files.
