    Link assembly qty to part properties

    Mark Greenwell

      Hi,

       

      How would I be able to this.

       

      If I created a part in an assembly, and then say copied this part 4 times there would be a total of 5 items the same.

       

      So now when I open the original part up and go to crate a part drawing I need the qty required to show as 5.

       

      On my drawing all of the info is filled in from custom properties taken from the part file.

       

      Most of it I can get to fill in automatically, but I cannot figure out how to have the qty in a part file be populated by the qty in an assembly file.

       

      Below is a csreen shot of what I need to fill in, in a part file the qty (42 in this case) needs to taken from the assembly, at the moment I am manually filling in

       

       

      Thanks
