Hi!

I dont't konw if is possible insert an assembly into an assembly (father) directly with a custom configuration.

It is useful for me when I must instert a big assembly into another.

When I insert it, I must wait the loading. I think that I could make before a configuration in the assembly (child) with only visible the parts that I use for positioning it, and save time.

Is possible?

 

Thanks

Yes it is.  Before inserting it, right mouse click in the Part Library pane and select "Assembly - Use Configurations and Open As Settings".  Then when you add an assembly as a component you will be prompted with a dialog and can select the Configuration to use for placement.
