Anyone looked at the new functionality of the property tab manager with weldments?
I can not find any useful information in the help file and how it works in conjunction with weldments.
Can you please post a picture to make me understand what you mean ?
Not sure what I'd take a picture of.
The what's new says you can now use the property builder to create cutlist properties but there is no explanation on how this achieved or how to use it... unless I've missed something.
Roy - You first have to save the property tab file as a weldment tab (not assembly, part or drawing). Then you're in the weldment, select a body and then you can select the proper form. If you don't have a weldment body selected then all you'll see is the part form.
Hope this helps,
thanks for that.
I have had a play with this but is there any real explanation in the help files?
Some of the boxes (fields) that can be added in the tab builder do not function properly on the property tab eg. lists.
So I was looking for detailed help.
Also why can you still opt for the configuration specific tab or custom property how does that work?
Roy - Documentation on the weldment portion of the tab builder is scant. I would geuss there's more info here ont he forum than the help files.
Regarding the config specific fields and weldments, you're getting into an odd area. I would assume you could use configs with weldments just as you would with anything else. I don't know, however, how the weldment properties specifically work with configurations. That you will have to test out.
