Hi everybody,

I wonder who have best list of custom properties for Part/Assembly template we can share and use. If you have property tab file associated with it please share it with us. I set up few custom properties at work and use them everyday. Right now i am looking for improvement and implementing good ideas. I design whole machines so sheet metal and weldment are used everyday. My list so far is:

Part Number - $PRP:"SW-File Name"

  1. Description
  2. Project
  3. Revision
  4. Material
  5. Finish
  6. Lifecycle
  7. Vendor
  8. VendorNo
  9. Cost
  10. Manufacturer
  11. ManufacturerPN
  12. Weight
  13. SW-Last Saved Date
  14. Quantity

They are mapped in drawing format table and saved in assembly and part template.

I have plans to add more like:

  • manufacturing information: make/buy, stock size, blank size for sheets
  • manufacturing process: waterjet/laser vs cnc milling, bending tools size
  • notes for drawing
  • costing: quotes information, manufacturing cost, material cost

Feel free to make any good suggestions, those doesnt have to by used all time but are handy and ready to use.
