Basically I would like to add or replace the custom properties of already existing parts and assemblies with a set of pre-defined properties, without having to manually type in each custom property. Or make a macro that can do something similar?
You can delete all of the properties an paste new ones without typing anything, similar to excel. There are also numerous macros to replace properties.
Ok, that seems to work! Just Ctrl-C from one part and Ctrl-v into another part's custom properties. Thanks!
Try creating a new part/assembly add the required custom properties, assign values and save the part/assembly as part/assembly template:
Solidworks shoud automatically switch to a default templates folder.
Now when you want to create a new part with predefined set of custom properties just use your new part template.
Hope that helps.
I'm trying to apply these properties to already existing parts without having to re-make them. When if I use a template I would have to, and it is not always the same custom properties.
