    GLOBAL TEXT VARIABLE

    Simion Beb

      Hi guys,

      I have a large assembly with sheet metal parts in.

      I use a macro to convert them in dxf.

      I use equations to change dimensions.

      I want to engrave the name of assembly on each of them.

      I want to create a test variable (assembly name) to be engraved on each of them from one shot.

      Is anyone know how to do this?

      Thanks.

          Open a part and insert a sketch on a face then go Tools/Sketch Entities/Text - then in the text dialog box type in

           

           

          Then it will show in your sketch like this

           

           

          Now you can use Cut Extrude
