Linking Part / Assembly to Drawing

Question asked by Ian Woodward on Feb 4, 2016

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
