I am certain that everyone who uses SOLIDWORKS configurations wishes they had the ability to control exactly how the configurations are sorted in the configuration manager. Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corporation has fulfilled our wish with new functionality in SOLIDWORKS 2017 giving us control over how the configurations are ordered/sorted.
Setting the SOLIDWORKS Configuration Order
Right-click on the component at the top of the configuration manager and note a new shortcut-menu item called “Tree Order“, from here you can set the order of the configurations to be:
- Manual (drag & drop)
- Or by the order they appear in the Design Table.
The Manual order provides you the greatest flexibility to reorder your configurations as you see fit.
This is just one of the many new improvements that we will see with the release of SOLIDWORKS 2017. Check back for more SOLIDWORKS 2017 tech tips.
