Remember where you can find the Configuration Manager…which lists all the configurations within our file.…As mentioned before, while creating fillets…we will be creating a right-hand or spline version…of the model so we can use it when we assemble…the bottom end.…Using configurations to achieve our desired results…is a simple and efficient process.…Activate the Configuration Manager.…Right mouse click on the part name at the top of the tree…to bring up the available commands and select…
