I am creating a lot of assemblies composed of a single sheet metal part with an assortment of toolbox fasteners. I'd like the assembly properties to automatically link to the sheet metal part's custom properties, so that I only need to modify one set.
A few solutions I'd like to ask about are:
a.) have assembly properties autofill from part when clicking "Make Assembly from Part"
b.) have part and assembly custom properties' both linked to a common excel table
c.) have drawing sheet formats fill data from a selected part other than the assembly
We used to pull the material info from the part into the assembly property by setting the material property to be "SW-Material@<partfilename>.SLDPRT". I think we had to manually fill it in though. It's been a few years and I don't remember exactly how we did it.
