I want to create a custom border and title block. Can any one tell me the correct process for this?
The easiest way is to open an existing drawing, edit the sheet format, make your changes, and save as a new sheet format. That command is accessed through the File menu.
Or if you have one that you are copying, do basically the same thing but copy the other one and paste it in. Then modify to suit.
I have all of ours accessing properties to fill in the title block. Here's an example.
If you are looking to setup templates that are driven automatically
from the models here are some links that might help you.
One that talks about the property tab builder
One that talks about the linking between the title block and the custom properties
This one has great step by step on the setting up process along with some great links
Hope these help you. Best of luck to you.
Also, don't forget about the Title Block Wizard that is available while in the Edit Sheet Format mode. This is a powerful tool that allows for more intuitive control of custom properties values within the title block.
I want to have a title area that can be reused in slddrt's.
This block will have the graphic logo and property variables already embedded.
Editing one block for changes, then dropping it into drt's will speed an update process.
I do this now in Inventor with a sketched symbol that is a title block type that is easily inserted.
The only information on block says that a block can be used in a drt. I have been searching for explanations before experimenting.
Mar22- First experiment,
The parameter variable can work when nested in a block that is placed into a sheet format.
The graphic did not work within a block. It stayed on the sheet where the block was created. Must try again to discover a workflow.
Mar24- Second experiment with blocks,
Insert picture will only insert onto the sheet or the sheet format. Insert will not go into a block, or into an empty view.
That means positioning a logo separately from a sketch, a block, or an empty view.
This website has a huge amount of help in it. http://solidworkstemplates.com/
