I work as a designer in a bespoke machinery workshop, we do a lot in sheetmetal, this means i create a lot of flat pattern drawings which are sent to the laser cutters in dwg format.
I create one laser drawing with all the flat patterns spread out over it.
Each part is a 1:1 scale and has a list of things under it that the laser cutter needs like:
- name or description
- Material thickness
- Material type
- Amount we require
- material finish
My question is can Solidworks add this information? It already knows the thickness and material type. I have to add this all manually and the chance of a mistake is higher if i don't correctly check it all over. And mistakes have been made on thickness because i typed it in wrong.
Is there a way of selecting this information so i can add it easily?
