Family tables is a long know method with ProEngineer/Creo parametric to make families of products – like families of bolts and roller bearings. Configurable Products expand these possibilities in two major ways: First it makes configurable assemblies possible where one topologically different component can replace another. Secondly it presents the configurable product in an interactive way which enable the user to experiment with product configurations and different variants in an easy way. In this exercise we will replace a circular axel with a hexagonal axel. (some of this functionality has been available as: configurable assemblies in earlier versions of Creo) An example of a practical application of configurable products is shown below where an outdoor Play/Exercise system is transferred from AutoCAD 2D to a 3D configurable product in Creo 3.0.
