Configurable Properties

Happy new year everyone!

I´ve got a general question about the configurable properties. If I want to configure the properties in a partstudio, all existing configurations automatically pull in.

If I want  to configure the properties in an assembly, I have to manually add all existing configurations. And if I dont add every single config by hand, I cant change the description (in this case) in any other config.

@NeilCooke can you tell me why? Whats the reason behind this?

Thank you
Best regards,

Axel Kollmenter

    Hi, every combination of configurable parameters creates a unique part, and as you know each Part has a Description.
    Configuratons are related to all parts in a Part Studio, you are actually configuring the Part Studio.
    Hence if you have four configurations you get 4 x 4 parts.
    If you use more Part Studios, one part in each, maybe it will be easier for you ??

    My experience is that you have add rows manually in both part studios and assemblies.
    However if you edit properties from a BOM table for a configured part, it will create a row in the configured part properties for the configuration you are editing so maybe that's why you already had some entries in there?
