I'm curious if there is an easy way to automate blank size on sheetmetal drawings?
It would be helpful to our vendor if the extents of the flat IE..... 22"x36" could be displayed. Is there an easy way to do this??
SW2011 has a blank size included as a property. If you are on a previous version, you can run the macro here called BoundingBox that will add those dims to one or three properties and then reference those properties to a note. I haven't looked at the macro for some time, but I think it's static - you have to update it when your model changes.
Thanks. I am just about to upgrade so I will look for that feature.
Also if you want to make the old school unfold/fold and blanksize sketch -thing, you could look these:
