Design Table, reference a property only. Do not change the property on configuration, similar to how reference dimensions work with design tables?

Question asked by Mason Cobb on Jun 13, 2019

   I have about 150 parts with individual design tables with roughly the same properties. The design tables do not currently display dimensions about the component. Also the parts were designed a long time ago with 'not excellent' design intent. I needed to change the drawings from having an individual sheet for every configuration to having a standard view with callouts like 'A', 'B', 'C' and have the design table show the values at those configurations. Standard Design table stuff.

   To solve my issue I created a new sketch and created reference dimensions to the important geometry, and import this into the design table. I fooled around with having some sort of template I could use but my problem is the properties on the component all get deleted, instead of automatically populating like the reference dimensions.

   So, Is there a way for me to reference a component property in a design table, instead of being able to change it from the table? I'm open to other solutions to my problem. Thanks

 

TL:DR: Is there a way for me to reference a component property in a design table, instead of being able to change it from the table?
