Where does your Part number come from?

Hi all,

We are in process of implementing an ERP system here and it seems to be limited in importing from Solidworks the PN as custom property only.


We use the file name as a part number and it will show correctly on the drawing if manipulated through the configurations properties as shown on the picture.


Please let me understand- are we the only company that has this approach or are there other companies that do not use custom properties for part number?


It seems like a waste of resource if SolidWorks developed this functionality just for my company...


Please let me know.

Thank you,
