It's my first project working with the property tab builder and I'm unsure the best way to describe my model. I wondered what is best practice is for situations like this.
A simple example of a door frame, I have a property HINGED
Ideally I would like this to have choice of the following
So in property tab builder I could use a list, I could use this property directly in my drawing but I would have to use Excels capabilities in a DT to get it to drive my model.
Alternately I could use numeric codes and/or Boolean
- -1 Left
- 0 None/Unknown
- 1 Right
- 2 Both
I could then use this property to directly drive my model via equations but I would need to add another equation in my BOM.
I feel this would also invite 'human' error to come calling. Radio buttons do a reasonable job of eliminating this, but they are limited to 3 choices
What would be great is if I could have the best of both worlds. A single control in the property tab builder that created two properties; HINGED_DESCRIPTION and HINGED_CODE
Is there a way to do that? or must I use a DT
