Please find the attachment for that type of note
Welcome to the forum
I think you may have to run a simple macro to get a custom property and link that value in the drawing to have both these values
These discussions may help you:
Thanks for ur immediate reply but i need the same shortcut or any other method in Solidworks 2008
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Chandrashekar .
Create an equation and use that. Check this post: Display Mass in Dual Units in SolidWorks
You might also find this post helpful for your future reference
Thanks Deepak its useful, but is it not possible in Solidworks 2008 or 2009
This will work with any version of SolidWorks which can handle equations.
No it is not taking the same equation , mainly the "SW-Mass". For that only i have attached
Can you attach one file to check?
i have attached a file in new discussion "File for reference"
= "SW-Mass" * 0.2
= "Sw-Mass" * 0.2
in your equation.
Even then i am getting the same error. I think its not in SW 2008. Can i know from which Version it starts.
Sorry I don't have lower versions to cross check it but you can use a design table and apply the formula there to get the required results.
can u pls provide me the link for that
I'll see if I can get an example/tutorial for lower version OR can you open file from SW2011 or SW2012 version.
no i can't open any future version files. sorry for late reply . can u assist me to apply the same using design table or provide me a link of the discussion.
I don't think SW 2008 can directly access document properties in equations. This capability was added in 09 or 10, I forget which.
You can obtain the mass using the line:
This will retrieve the mass, always in system units (kg) regardless of the unit settings of the document. You can easily convert from there. for example, the equation to get pound mass would be:
"PoundsMass"= part.extension.createmassproperty.mass * 2.20462262
I think 2008 has the capability to link a custom property to the value of the return of an equation.
Thanks a lot for that information.
That was a good piece of knowledge that SW could link such properties in equation and returns a value.
It works perfect
Thanks for the tip and heads up Josh..
See you at SWW12
Wish I was going to be there! Too many obstacles this year.
Please open the attached file and see how the equation works as Josh explained.
Hope this solves your problem now.
