How would I add part number in the models rather than adding part number manually in drawings?
Also visit the similar questions in the More Like This box on the RH side of the page.
Take a look at this thread.
I have checked the thread and on my screen is different from that. In the link to property, model in view specified in sheet properties is grayed out. Could it be the version 2010 I'm using?
Your screen shot is from part mode whereas that one is from drawing.
Where exactly you looking to add the part number??
I would like to add part number and description in part mode. That way whenever I create a drawing, it automatically pulls the info into the title block onto the print.
Then add them in the File properties of the part
and then link the note/text in drawing to them (if required) as stated here: https://forum.solidworks.com/message/135097#135097
Sorry I didn't getback to you yesterday. I had issues logging in.
Anyway, Deepak is correct. That screen shot is from part mode. If you setup what I showed you in my first posting
in the drawing it will reflect the part number from the model.
Good morning Jeff,
Attached is a Drawing Template and Drawing Format,
I have the Part Number in the title block,
How ever you still need to add the information in the Custom Property Manager,
I run a custom property macro which has a fairly tidy interface for adding all the meta data I need. The macro is pretty old, I believe the Property Tab Builder in SolidWorks Tools is the way to build up something along these lines with your own parameters. This makes filling in meta data a lot easier and adds more control. Once you have that setup, create a document template with any generic fields filled in to save the few seconds it takes repeatedly filling them out. You may want to create different document templates for parts with different materials, customers/clients, divisions etc. You can also save these templates in different directories then add them to the options>file location>document templates which will give you tabs for the different templates in the new file window.
