    how to: numbering lines in a drawing

    Mast Hoff

      Hi People,


      I have to draw sketches of a circle with different amount of lines in it. these lines need to be numbered for our mechanics to know at what number they have to do the work.

      I have not found a practical sollution (auto ballooning wont work because I drew it as 1 part and circular patterned these lines), so now i have to print out the drawing and write the number (e.g. 1 to 140 ) by hand. Doing this in Solidworks with a note takes way too much time.


      is there a sollution for this? can i set auto ballooning to number up at every line select? the lines are equaly spread over the circle, maybe a circular numbering or something like this?


      I do not need a BOM ore something like that, i just want to number the lines one by one.


      (for example.. usually i draw this in SW)

      Thanks in advance!
