A Complete Custom Property Management Solution
PropertyLinks is an add-in product for SOLIDWORKS that allows the easy and consistent input of custom file properties into SOLIDWORKS documents. Custom Properties are pieces of information that can be saved with SOLIDWORKS parts, assemblies and drawings. Custom Properties can be used to populate annotations, BOMs (Bill of Material), and drawing templates/formats in SOLIDWORKS.
PropertyLinks includes the following features:
- Fully integrated into the SOLIDWORKS Property Manager.
- Toolbar and Drop Down menu are provided in SOLIDWORKS.
- Fully customizable interface allowing you to organize how properties are displayed.
- Automate the insertion of properties using default values and drop down lists.
- Copy and paste properties for faster data population.
- Automated part number generator.
- Configuration specific properties can be assigned.
- Uses the SOLIDWORKS Material Library.
- Allows you to easily edit weldment properties for cut lists
- SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM and SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional ready.
PropertyLinks Professional extends the functionality of PropertyLinks by enabling SOLIDWORKS users to extract part property information out of company Access and SQL Databases. Often, purchased part numbers, descriptions, standard costs, vendor name and other attributes will be stored in a database outside of the Engineering Department such as an ERP system.
Directly from within SOLIDWORKS, using a series of cascading pull down lists, a user can select the correct part from the database. PropertyLinks Professional will automatically extract the relevant property information. The database connections can be defined from within the PropertyLinks Administration Panel and will be immediately available to all users.

Included in SOLIDWORKS
Included with PropertyLinks is an Administration application which allows you to configure the PropertyLinks interface and assign presets and defaults for custom property data entry. The data files used by PropertyLinks can be stored in a central location so that all users on a network share a common set of data.
Every property field is "user defined", allowing full customization for data entry.
SOLIDWORKS Property Manager pages are customizable.
Previous versions of data files can be inserted.
Custom Part Numbering can be setup for documents.
PropertyLinks Administration uses a wizard to link data files.
Configure Database connections and lookups
PropertyLinks also includes SOLIDWORKS BOM and Drawing templates that are pre-configured to work with the properties that PropertyLinks stores into SOLIDWORKS documents. You can install the software and templates, configure the menus and start into production in one afternoon!
