Possible operation on drawings.

This operation allows:

The rule of naming:


The operation does not open the documents in SOLIDWORKS except if the variations do not exist first.

Example :


I supplement the same example processed in the chapter ''To decline the configurations and replaces the components'' by adding the condition and the operation in order to process drawings. I add, in the selection of the files, drawings to be processed.

These drawings are named with an explicit name (Cross-section 1 hole, Squares 2 holes, etc…). On the other hand the reference points on the file “multi-configurations” and it is in the properties of the view that the configuration used is declared.


  • Step 1: I definite the condition “If the reference plan a particular component” in the folder specified “E:\… \ RPE \ Feeding-bottle” containing of the components using several configurations.


  • Step 2: I parameter an operation which consists in recording each component with specified name. In this example the safeguard of the files will be the followed “Name” by the “Name of the configuration”.


 Important: the folder defines under the condition must be identical to that of the site of the referred documents.

As of the end of the treatment, I can note that the references point from now on on the renamed files “mono-configuration” with the definite rule of renaming.
