    Default "Parametric" Text -- Text Based on Parameters/Dimensions

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hey guys,

    Is there anyway to generate text based on other dimensions or parameters stored in the parameters manager?

    For instance, if I have a line that is 3" long, I'd like to have a note that says 'This line is 3"'. Or, if a circle is X feet in diameter, I'd like to have a note that says 'This circle is X feet'. These are just examples, but I hope you get what I'm saying.

    I'm using the new parametric modeling and doing some amazing stuff, but I'd like to parametrize my notes, too, if at all possible.

    You can use fields to show your objects properties. You can use it to show parameters value or expression.
    This is a sample I use for labeling coordinate: http://cad-notes.com/2009/11/how-to-...te-in-autocad/
