Preparing a Model

A configuration, or product variant, consists of a set of layers.

Creating a variant can be thought of as defining which layers among those you have prepared will be visible and which will be hidden. Consequently, creating configurations depends on having prepared product layers before you define the configuration rules.

In this section, the chapters Understanding Partitions and Using Meaningful Layer Names will help you think about layers used in configurations, and how to name and group layers in order to create configurations.

If you need more information on creating layers, documentation dedicated to aspect, position and environment layers is available.
