Hi All,

I’m trying to find a way to get a custom Cut List Property Note in a drawing from a flat pattern sheet metal part.

A standard note consist a lot of useless information for me.

I spend a few days searching for the solution over the internet and ended with nothing.

Is there a way to modify a standard note, so it displays only the lines I need and save it as a standard?

I don’t need to add anything extra to it, just less information that the standard note gives.

Or maybe there is a way to modify this macro I have found:

2016 SOLIDWORKS API Help - Insert Cut List Item Property Note Example (VBA)

It puts the standard note in a specified location on a sheet, such is great, except I would like to shorten to a few specified lines:


Sheet Metal Properties:

- Thickness:

- Bend Radius:

- Number of Bends:

- Number of Cuts:

- Outer cutting length:

- Inner cutting length:

- Material:

- Weight:


Thank you for any help in advance
