How to create SOLIDWORKS Configuration for a Part

Why create many SOLIDWORKS part if you could just create a configuration in a single SOLIDWORKS part? Using the part configuration in SOLIDWORKS, you can vary the design by modifying the feature dimensions and tolerances, suppress features, use different sketch planes, control the configuration of a base part, change the size of Hole Wizard Holes, etc. Here is a sample of using a configuration in SOLIDWORKS part:
  1. Go to Configuration Manager.
Using SOLIDWORKS Configuration for a Part Click this icon to access the Configuration Manager. You will see your part name and a default configuration.

Modeling in 3D with SolidWorks

SolidWorks helps you move through the design cycle smarter. We live in a 3D world, so by designing in a 3D environment, your team can create real solutions faster, more accurately, and more creatively.

    • In SolidWorks, you can not only create solid models, but also import, create, and manipulate surfaces; view models in wireframe mode; and generate 2D drawings from the 3D solid models.
