HW2017 Configuration Browser Functionality

Recommended Posts

I have just installed HW 2017 and ma playing with the new options in the part browser, namely the partset and configuration panels.


Maybe I understand the functionality incorrectly however I don't understand the response I am see from the configuration panel.


If i create a new configuration and add a single part or even part set to it and then activate it I see all my parts switch on even though they are not within the new configuration?


Additionally if I deactivate the configuration all the parts that just become active do not deactivate (which I guess is correct because they aren't in the configuration)?


In fact if i make a new configuration and add nothing to it at all and activate it all my parts are activated even though it is empty??


What am I missing about this functionality?

Hi Richard,

For the part sets created, create configurations and group part sets in the configurations and enable the configuration. Then all of the parts, part assemblies, components, and part sets not associated with that configuration become inactive.

A tutorial on the same is available in Help Menu and the same is attached for reference.Capture.PNG
