Default Display Configuration Behavior

Pioneer

Hello Everyone,

 

Here I go, hoping to relate behaviors from other CAD packages with SE.

 

Is there a way to set a default behavior for display configurations to INCLUDE or EXCLUDE assembled components after the configuration is created?

 

Thanks!

No, and I always thought that was an unfortunate omission. Any newly inserted parts will be excluded by default but unlike SolidWorks you can't set configs so new components will automatically be included. You must unhide and save in older configs or use the configuration manager.

That is.....most unfortunate. Especially when detailing top level electro-mechanical assembly drawing views. Trying to differentiate the seperate subsystem components with multiple display configurations is becoming....cumbersome.

 

Well...rats.

Config Manager is the closest but is manual.

also  i find it helpful to just hit the "Save Disp Config" button as a fast way to "upate" the current disply.

Oh yes, great point. I already live by that sucker. Pretty sure the configuration system is only as stable as the effort you put into it. One slip up is all it takes, a costly lesson, that.

@Papasaurus  But SW's config methods don't save you from error. One could argue that the forced review of configs in SE sort of enforces coherence.
