How to: Use Onshape Part Configurations

Onshape allows you to have multiple configurations of your part within the same Onshape document.  For example, you can assign any sketch, dimension or part feature to one or more configurations and Onshape will rebuild and display each configuration on demand!  Using configurations are very useful when you have families of parts that have similar features.

Config 1

Config 1

Config 2

Config 2

VisualCAMc supports the part configurations within your Onshape document.  In the Fixture Plate part shown here, we have three configurations defined in the Onshape document.  They are labeled Default, Config 1 and Config 2. We have configured the hole feature as well as its defining sketch dimensions.
