Firstly I was not sure where to put this - Could do with a "custom property" tab in "add In" or something?
Im new to solid works customisation. Im currently Looking into some Custom property mapping for a Small company. We have a ERP/MRP System but with a difficult to use database.
I cant help but feel i can get the result i want using custom property manager and clever use of the tools already available rather then paying for customwork or custom tools, however these do seem to give me what i need.
Basically I need a open database that is easy to use with properties easily accessible.
I need to be able to manage standard solidworks propertys such as
Also Properties Driven by the model
Selected Surface area
(which looks possible on Customworks here : http://www.cadworkssoftware.com/modules/system/stdreq.aspx?P=164&VID=default&SID=188927136187836&S=1&A=closeall&C=26184 )
or is this limited to thickness etc?
So as far as i am under the impression Solid works Saves Its Custom property data within a "closed" database? is there anyway to make this accessible? Or is this difficult?
If it is What is the best program to use Customworks/custom tools any other suggestions?
Idealy i need this in a Tab/save format so that it is easy to populate for each model/assem but this might be asking to much!?
