Help: Extracting Cut-List Info at Assembly Level

Hello all,

 

I am trying to extract information (via a note pointed at a weldment member) at the assembly level. I have inserted a Detailed BOM (which shows the cut-list info under the part number/name). Basically I woud like to be able to point to a structural member at the assembly level and have it give me information about it, such as member type, length, etc.

 

As an example here is the callout we use for the job I am on now:

 

$prpwld:"descriptoion"

$prpwld:"length"mm

 

The result from the above looks like this (as an example):

 

PL 20x300

(2380mm)

 

I would like this same information in an assembly to avoid having to make so many drawings of each part. If I use the above syntax (boy, if that word does not tell my age....LOL) at the assembly level - it pulls in the DESCRIPTION in the Properties (such as the part name), not the cut-list properties.

 

Thanks so much for your help.

 

John Lega
