Solved! Go to Solution.
Note you could do some "expression magic" to do this. (note that arrangements might be better in the long term, as you could have more than 2 states, e.g. "all open", "all closed", "Only_Group1_Open", etc.)
1) Create an expression like "Clamps_Open", (constant) set to 0 (closed) or 1 (open)
(this could be a string expression, but that makes the logic slightly more complex)
2) For each clamp, set the angle based on "Clamps_Open", e.g.:
clamp_1_angle = If(Clamps_Open == 0) 0 else 60
with 0 (closed) and 60 (open) angles as appropriate for each clamp.
This way you just edit "Clamps_Open" to switch all from one state to the other

I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
Arrangements in the higher level assemblies remember which arrangement is "used" in the immediate child assemblies.
Set the arrangement in the top level to "All Open", then set each of the subassemblies to "Open".
Set the arrangement in the top level to "All Closed", then set each of the subassemblies to "Closed".
Now you can just toggle the arrangement in the top level between "All Open" and "All Closed" to change all of the lower level assemblies.
Hello, there is training for Assembly Arrangements at the Learning Advantage site. Located here: "https://training.plm.automation.siemens.com/". You do need a login and password for this site. If you can access this site and browse under Self-Paced Courses, you can expand out CAD-Foundation, Assembly Modeling - Fundamentals and find a course called "Assembly arrangements and component patterns".
