When I link a note to the configuration name custom property, I also get the AS MACHINED or AS WELDED part of the configuration name. How do I get only the name I have given it ?
I see, I have never used for weldments.
Check if this helps
2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Disabling Automatic Creation of Derived Weldment Configurations
configuration<as welded>, <as machined>
Click link property in note dialog box and pick configuration name in drop down menu.
Hope this will help
thanks Samir, I know how to link the note to the configuration name, however when I do, the name always adds the words "as welded" or " as machined" to the note as well instead of just the name I have given the configuration.
That doesn't make any sense, though it is working correctly for me.
Would you mind to share snap shot of your configuration properties?
here are my properties.
here is what the note looks like when I link it to configuration name. It obviously has something to do with the part being a weldment.
Couldn't you just link to the Description instead of the Configuration Name?
