Using Design Table to Auto-Fill Title Block

Question asked by Andres Kacerosky on Aug 12, 2019

Hello there, 

 

I am relative new to design tables in Solidworks so please excuse my ignorance. I will try to breakdown everything so I can make my question as clear as possible. 

 

Background:

We have different configurations that have different part numbers/names and dimensions. So one product would have a 3D model number, 2D drawing number and it's name. I want all of these title to auto-fill in the title block of the 2D drawing based on the configuration of the view.  See below:

 

 

Design Table:                                                                           Configuration Properties:

 

I manage to get the Model #: to autofill using the Link to Property using the BOM Part Number. I got lucky with this one but I would like to autofill the drawing Number. 

 

 

Summary:

I want to autofill data in the Title block using custom text/numbers. I understand you can auto-fill material, dates, etc.. but I want custom data based on the configuration. If there's a macro, please explain how to use it because I am not very good with macros. 

 

Thanks for any help.
