how to generate automatic part numbers in solid works by using any programmes like VB ?
Welcome to SolidWorks forums Sreenivas.
Check this one SolidWorks Autonumbering Macro
You might also find this post helpful for your future reference.
Deepak, sorry to bring up an old post, I am looking into using this macro and have one query. If all my files are saved as 000001, 000002 etc. how can I find a part I want in the file explorer (i.e. if I'm looking for the local version rather than the version in vault)?
The image below shows how I am used to doing this. In the image the files are shown as the part number (how I currently save files) however I'm worried that if it is just a list of 00001, 00002, 00003 etc. I will have no idea what each file is.
Welcome to the forum.
I know this may be a little bit of a costly answer, but EPDM will create automatic part numbers once setup.
