    Linking Part / Assembly to Drawing

    Ian Woodward

      Hello guys,

       

      I have a custom part property file containing the following fields

      Description:

      Finish: (Excel List)

      Material: (Excel List)

      Weight: (SW-MASS - Automatically calculated inside solidworks)

       

      I have linked these fields to my standard drawing template (using the 'link to property' function and 'model found here' selection). This means providing I fill these properties in inside the part file as soon as I create the drawing for the part the fields are automatically populated.

       

      I now want to create the same custom property file for assembly files. I have created a custom assembly part property file using the exact same fields but for some reason these do not show up when I import the assembly into a drawing.

       

      What is the best way to go about this? Should what I'm trying work?

      Hopefully that makes sense, please let me know if not and I will try to explain it better.

       

      Many thanks
