Quick question about saving bodies, then making drawings of the individual parts..
So I'll draw up a bent pipe part using Structural Members. Then ill rename the cut-list bodies and run the save bodies command. This all works fine and i end up with individual part files, but....
(there's always a but...)
...When I drop one of the newly saved parts into a drawing, the weight populated in the data block is the weight of the original solidworks part, with all saved bodies combined. I need the data block to populate the weight of this body alone... ideas?
I don't know much about scripting / macros & what-have-you, so not sure how to make the proper weight value populate, but im sure there is some way.. just looking for guidance.
Couple images to illustrate:
The drawing populates the total weight (29.02lbs) of the original multi-body part.
The individual saved body has a mass of 2.18 lbs, how do i get this value to populate in the drawing?
Unfortunately our drawing templates were built by a former employee, who never used saved cutlist bodies. No one here today has any ideas how to fix.
Any guidance is much appreciated.
