When working on large assemblies in can help to create custom configuration to improve your system performance.
- [Instructor] Configurations are another great method…to improve your performance when working…in large assemblies or complex part files…in Solid Works.…Let's walk through an example I have here.…I've downloaded a Mobile Folding Worktable offline…from 3D ContentCentral, SolidWorks' website.…I'm going to open it Resolved,…and take a look at some of the custom configurations…that I've placed in there.…I can see it's taken a few moments to open up completely.…
I've got a lot of components in this file,…all different part numbers.…These happen to be from 8020.…So you can see here at 3D ContentCentral,…this is where I downloaded it, and it came zipped.…So I haven't done anything to the part files,…or the assembly.…All I've done is added a bunch of different configurations.…So now going back to Windows Explorer,…I can see here that currently my file size…is 3,184 kilobytes.…
I'm going to see if I can reduce that using configurations.…So what I've done is try to separate it out…into useful configurations that will help me down the road.…
