I wanted to map Revision and Part Number of the model into its respective drawing EPDM variable, such that the Revision set in Part / Assy model shows up in both Part / Assy / Drawing EPDM card. I've set Variable "Revision" to block "$PRPSHEET" and Attribute "Revision" to slddrw, and Block "CustomProperty" Revision in all Solidworks files.
It should read into attributes "Revision" in sldprt and sldasm and write it as "Revision" in slddrw files.
It works for newly created files with templates but doesn't work on imported files. I've tried Update the slddrw files but it doesn't help. Any idea? Thanks!
I've set revision variable as followed (And similarly in Variable "Number" to PartNo in part/assy model)
