    Default Extracting and Adding Dim Info

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello All,

    I am working on making Bills of Materials with Block information. I use tubing as a main component in my data extractions. What I would like to do is be able to extract the text overwritten length that I dictate from the all dimension leaders with the same part number, and add them to get an overall length of tubing used in the assembly.

    For instance if I have two blocks, both with the part number "tube 1" but one has a dimension leader where I overwrite 5 (inches) and one has a dimension leader where I overwrite 6 I would like the data extraction to show "tube 1" with 11 (inches).

    Much appreciated!

    Hello,
    I would like the QTY of SIL-C-0250-2 to read 19.0 and the QTY of SIL-C-0625-4 to read 12.0 even though the measured distances aren't equal to the overwritten distances.
