Multi Config - a new feature to generate all configurations

Caden_ArmstrongCaden_Armstrong Member Posts: 65 PRO
Introducing a new feature - Multi Config. This feature set allows you to generate all (or many) possible combinations of configuration parameters for a given part or part studio.
For configuration variables, the user simply has to add each possible value that they want to include in the matrix of configuration parameters.

A couple notes about this feature:

- Be careful with regen time. If a part takes 5 seconds to regen, and you generate 100 configurations - the result will take 500 seconds.
- This feature requires both halves (the setup and the generator). This is a weird quirk I had to work around to get the UI to function. 
- Configuration table names will have internal IDs instead of the user facing one, but the user manual shows how to find the names (or change them).

You can check out a public demo of it here
You can grab it here on fs.place

    Awesome!!  I've been pondering about a feature like this but never went through with it. 

    Especially useful for an export of all configurations in one go!!!

    My app Renaissance is able to export all configurations in one go, which is part of the reason why I thought configurations were more of an API thing.

    I think one of the values of this is to quickly check if any configurations "don't work". A quick visual check for anything that is non-conforming or isn't working as intended.
