Configuration Tables are awesome, now how do I export my 300 parts?

brandon_furtwanglerbrandon_furtwangler Member Posts: 11
As far as I can tell, every time I make a change I'm going to have to manually configure the part & export all 300 variations manually?  That will take days...

Is there a better way?  I as hoping for a 'export all configurations' where I can feed configuration settings into the export template somehow, but I can't find anything like this.  Have I missed an easy way to do this?

If you're wondering why I have 300 configurations - it's because I made a keycap configurator and their are several factors the combine (shape/profile/size/homing).

    You could write a FeatureScript to import your configured part studio repeatedly, cycling through the different configurations using the configuration option of the instantiator module. Then you could shift select all the parts in the part studio and export them as individual parts. Not ideal, I know, but better than manually configuring and exporting a ton of variations. You might also need to limit it to a couple dozen variations at time to keep performance at a somewhat reasonable level.

    thanks.  that sounds 100x better than the alternative.  will give it a shot tomorrow.

    I have done this with the api and might be the fastest way to do this. 300 parts in a studio does not sound terribly performant.
