Chapter 19Controlling Assembly Configurations and Display States

Assembly configurations enable you to control many things, including part configurations, suppression, visibility, color, assembly feature sizes, assembly layout sketch dimensions, mate values, and suppression states. In this chapter, you will learn about related topics such as design tables, SpeedPak, derived configurations, and display states.

Display states are a better performance alternative than configurations for controlling visibility and display styles in assemblies. Display state options are discussed at length in this chapter.
