Cut List Description Edit Help Needed

Question asked by Jim Paige on Mar 10, 2017

In a weldment cut list, is there any way to include the "Length" variable in the Description string for items created via weldment profiles (sldlfp)?

The entry above was created by manually adding the "Length" property to the Description string in the model cut list, item by item.  Though effective, this was slow and not something that I'd trust the average user to do for every welded part.

Creating a new property is a possible solution but it would only apply to items created with a weldment profile and I don't know how to make SWX differentiate between these and non-profile items (like the "plate" in the table above".


I'm trying to accomplish this so that I can import the stock size data directly into a third party purchasing software package.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
