Share a configuration into a container
You can make a copy of your configuration as a new assembly with shared parts, stored in a container so you can easily identify the copy.
Use Multi Positions to view several configurations at the same time. To view a shared copy in a new viewport, right-click the shared assembly (which is inside the container), then click Draw Only in New VP. Tile your viewports to view a side-by-side comparison of your original assembly and the shared configuration.
To copy a configuration as shared parts in a container,
1. Click Structure and then, in the Configurations group, click More.
2. Click Multiple Positions in the Modify section. The Multi Positions dialog box opens.
3. Select the configuration you want to share in the Structure Browser.
4. Select the objects you want to create in the container:
All moved objects: Makes shared copies of all objects that are moved in the configuration.
Objects: Allows you to select the objects you want to share. Select parts in the viewport or use the Select tool.
5. Click to complete the operation.
Creo Elements/Direct Modeling will create a new container named multi_positions_configs, and its contents will be visible in the active viewport. Expand this container to see the list of parts that were copied.
