    Linking SolidWorks Feature Tree Folder name with PDM variable?

    Sam Sam

      Whether is possible linking virtual Folder Name from SolidWorks Feature Tree with the PDM variable or property of the file?

          Hi Sam Sam,

           

          Are you referring to these?

           

          If so, it is not possible to link the property or a variable to the name of a feature.  At least not with out-of-the-box functionality and with SPR 1017907 being "open" for cut lists (not an Enhancement Request, surprisingly).  Maybe with VBA magic for the time being?

           

          If you are using folders for cut lists, I would suggest reaching out to your VAR to vouch for that SPR to get fixed.

              Hi  Francisco,

               

              thanks for the answer and my question about it. your answer helps me to save time.

               

              But, if I am not mistaken, I somewhere met such (or similar) an opportunity with the Cut Lists folders. (by means of SolidWorks of macroes VBA Add-ins or Api).

              I still will try to look for information on this subject at the general forum, and suddenly someone will prompt still something.

              After that I will finally decide whether it is possible to consider a question closed.
