    Equations in Custom Property

    Stephen Bittner

      I'm trying to learn how I can manipulate Solidworks to:


      1. Get the configuration name (.500 in this example)

      2. Divide .500 by .0625 and return a value of 008

      3. Place the calculated value (008) into the PARTNO value (H00000-008 for example)


      See the screen shot for clarity.  How should I approach this?  I'm not very familiar with using equations in this context, so my learning curve is looking a little steep, and could use some expert advice to help me solve this problem and save myself a whole lot of time in creating our custom library of mechanical fasteners.  I am ultimately trying to avoid using Toolbox (I've had some bad experiences with it).
