Gain de temps : insérez des paramètres de tôlerie dans vos dessins

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated September 26, 2011


Before yesterday, I was sure I knew everything about custom properties and how to use them in parametric annotations. After all, if the information is already in the model, why not use it in Drawings, BOMs and other interesting places. Well… turns out I was wrong and… I am very happy about that!

The values for some custom properties have to be input manually by the user, but a lot of them are filled in automatically by SolidWorks. The problem is that SolidWorks works in silence and does not brag about it. So imagine my surprise (a pleasant one, of course) when Michel Cloutier showed us how fast and easy is to populate a note with the sheet metal parameters of your part with just 2 clicks.

Click 1: RMB (right mouse button) inside the border of a drawing view containing the Flat Pattern.
