Weldments/sheet metal + custom properties + multi languages

Question asked by Jerome De San Nicolás on Feb 5, 2020

Hi,

we are working on a multi language environment (English, Spanish and French). 

We have, for sheet metal and weldments, custom properties for the cut list for LENGTH and WIDTH, these properties are linked to the length and width of the body and there are used in cut list part in the drawing.

The issue is that SolidWorks translate this properties, like this :

 

en part :

 

es part :

 

fr part :

 

So if a French open a Spanish drawing the BOM will show "SW-Ancho del envolvente ..........." instead of the value bounding box.

this is an exemple of a cut list :

 

 

 

Is there a way to link the bounding box value to a property that will work for all languages?
