Simplified Reps to Toggle Assembly Contraint Sets

Guru's, is there some hidden way to toggle assembly contraint sets from set "A" to set "B" via simplified reps?



I am using WF5.0.

Choosing difference assembly constraint sets should be part of family tables, not Simplified Reps, but it isn't part of either for WF5. I saw a mention in passing for Creo 2 or Creo 3 for handling multiple constraint sets.


The reason for suggesting family tables is that there are related evaluation mechanisms in place to handle changes; Simplified Reps typically involve skipping evaluations, which is what makes them faster.

In Creo Parametric 1.0, when multiple assembly constraint sets are created, a special feature parameter called PTC_CONSTRAINT_SET is automatically created. Changing the value of this parameter to the name of one of the constraint sets will apply that constraint set when the assembly is regenerated.
