Hi all, 


Im am a bit new to the soldiworks PDM system and have a question about the data card.(i'm not an admin)

is there a posibility to fill in a model paramter in the datacard?

Lets say at size i want the dimension D1@sketch1 from my model. This way when i update my sketch the description is also changed. 

I want to be able to fill this in manually because in one situation i want D1 to show up and the other time i want D2 for example. 


We don't have any templates where the same parameters always represent the same dimension.


With other programs i know all data from such a data card is saved in the part as properties, so you could link as parameter to a property very easy. i don't know if this is also the case with the solidworks data card, and where all this info is stored.


If anyone could explain this or has an answer for me i would like hear.


Kind regards,
