Is it possible to modify properties such as Description for weldment profiles (.sldflp files) within the PDM Standard environment, or do I have to do it within Solidworks?
Make a data card for SLDLFP files, save it in the weldment profiles folder in the vault. If you have a text box on the data card that is linked to a variable that is mapped to the correct custom property for the SLDLFP file, it should all work. For instance, my vault has a variable named PART_DESCRIPTION. I create a data card for SLDLFP file with a text box linked to that variable:
For the variable, I set up an attribute mapping between PART_DESCRIPTION (the variable) and Description (the custom property in SLDLFP files):
If I check out a profile file and change the text in the text box:
the custom property in the file is updated when i check the file in:
This was PDM Pro, but I don't think any of the PDM standard limitations would prevent this form working.
