Is there a way to use different versions of the same part in an assembly?
Asked By Peter B.
Configurations are a very powerful tool in SolidWorks. They can be used for a wide variety of purposes from creating families of parts, creating simplified representations of a part, or assigning different attributes, such as a material, to create different versions of the same part.
The great benefit is that configurations allow you to do any of these things within a single part file. This SolidWorks video tutorial will show the basics of using configurations in an assembly.
