    Custom Properties from Part to Assembly

    Steve Krause

      I've been working on generating custom properties that the user enters when he creates a part.  Those properties will be used to automatically fill in text in the Notes of a drawing.

       

      But I realize that that doesn't seem to work with the work flow that I was imagining.

       

      - user starts new part.

      - user enters custom properties using the flyout custom property tab.

      - design part

      - lots of our sheet metal parts require PEM hardware so they become assemblies using Make Assembly From Part and then PEM parts are added.

       

      Unfortunately the new assembly doesn't have the custom properties that were entered from the part and when I create a new drawing from the assembly I don't have the custom properties that I originally entered in the starting part.

       

      Is there a way around this?  Do I need to change the work flow so that I enter the custom properties to assemblies only after the part has become an assembly when I am ready to start a drawing?
