I wish to create a "Parts Tag" that I can placed in a model with the parts position number on it. Is it possible to create an extruded text and be able to control the text content via the design table? (ie. Valve 01, Valve 02,.....)
As you may have guessed, I don't yet have SW2010. Josh Brady's method is close but not quite what I am looking for. If I change the programming to include entries from the design table, it becomes unusable (crashes).
SW2010 does have the ability to link sketch text to a property and change the text config specific.
See here Linking Sketch Text to Custom Properties | Drawings | Support
Why do you need it to be written on the part itself?
If it is for assembly drawing purpose, you better use the assembly "COMPONENT REFERENCE" to give it a unique name in an assembly drawing...
Give it a look in Solidworks help and here is an example of code to generate it automatically: https://forum.solidworks.com/message/361809?sr=search&searchId=909e684a-c2c6-466a-ba00-9b6293e50cf7&searchIndex=3#361809
Hope this help too!
