Title Block populated from Configuration Specific Tab

Recommended Posts

ILoveMadoka

I want to read Properties Information from the Configuration Specific Tab

inside of a Part into my Title Block and populate the drawing name / drawing number from there.

 

If $PRPSHEET:"PartNo" reads from the Custom Tab inside the Part File

and if $PRP:"PartNo" reads from the Drawings Properties Tab

How do you read from the Configuration Specific Tab? :cry:

 

Thanks!!

I'm pretty sure that if the custom proporties are identical in name to the configuration properties, then the information will always extract from the default "custom" tab and overwrite the "configuration" properties....

 

I think!

Let me test this out tonight and I'll get back to you.

 

Rather than using the $prp text etc. you should create a part file with all your custom information populated then add it to your drawing template.

similar to the method I have described here.

It makes life a hell of a lot easier.
