Setup Configurations for Different Operations

Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to setup setup configurations when deal with the same part in defferent positions in the machine. Currently I'm machining a large plate, and I've imported fixturing equipment and my machine table from my reuse library. When I turn the piece over I will re-add the fixturing equipment and machine table. 

 

I was wondering if there was a way I could group the table and fixturing equipment together in a folder or something that I could quickly check or uncheck when displaying my part in different setups. Currently the only way I know how to do this is I have to manually check or uncheck each reuse part from the Assembly Navigator. This becomes very tedious after a while. 

 

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thank you.

Have you already taken a look into assembly arrangements?

These are allowing to specify which components should be enabled in which particular arrangement.

Never knew about Assembly Arrangements before. After toying around with it, I have something that works. For people wondering what I'm doing and trying to do I'll make a little video tutorial. Thanks Stefan!
