You begin the design option process by creating design option sets. A design option set is a collection of alternatives that address a particular design problem. For example, you can create one design option set to show different designs for the entry of a building. You can create another design option set for alternative roof configurations. Each design option set contains one primary option and one or more secondary options.
By default, project views show the main model with the primary option for each set. If you want project views to show the main model only, with no design options, see . To see a list of design option sets and design options defined for a project, click the Design Options drop-down list on the status bar.
