Can anyone tell me how to link the configuration description and BOM part numbers in a note? I've tried several things similar to $PRP:"SW-Part Number", but I have had no luck.
If you are adding the note in the drawing view you should be able to link the text from the feature manager in Text Format, Link To Property.
I dont see the Description or Part number listed as an option:
Yes, the BOM part No. can be a problem, if you copy & paste does it stay linked.
On the Description, do you have the Description in the model properties?
As you can see it shows up on mine.
for a clearer description of my delima....
I have created the following properties for my part:
Note the Properties on the left (in particular the Description and the Part Number) are used on the BOM in the image below:
Q: how do I call out the properties that are driving the BOM?
I think the root of you problem is that you are trying to get PART properties to show up in a note on a drawing of the ASSEMBLY. this can only be done if the note is attached to the part in question (via a leader), or by adding a drawing view of the PART file to the page AND changing the view from wich that sheet pulls the custom properties from (ever note on the sheet will reference the same view)
The drawing shown is for the part. I have attached the solidmodel and drawing, should someone find a solution.
ok I'm stumped - I coudln't even find a property with "part number 1" in it...
BTW why would you put a BOM in a part drawing?
I just used the part as an example. I guess I didnt feel like taking the extra step and placing it into an assembly.
I could of sworn that you could at least choose the description in SW'09 and before.
currently I am useing SW'10 - 2.1
Surely somebody knows the answer to this.... anyone?
Works for me....
Be sure to have two configurations in the file.
