I have made a part (ABC123.SLDPRT) that has several different configurations, the difference is the value of one dimension.
I auto-created a design table which correctly lists the configurations on the form:
|Header 1||Header 2|
Now I wish to make a drawing, and I want the table in one corner, so that when manufacturers see part ABC123-2 they will know that that certain dimension should be 150 mm.
I add the table with no trouble, but I do not like that it says "D1@Sketch1". I would prefer it to say "H" (as in height) and then modify the dimension in the the drawing view to say H" as well.
My problem is that I cannot change the string "D1@Sketch1". Whenever I try renaming it in the part model/Design Table/Excel window, I get the message 'Column heading "H contains an invalid feature name "H". Exiting design table without completing model update.'
If I try to rename the dimension name in the sketch ("Primary Value = H") it becomes "H@Sketch1". The design table still does not accept the "H" column but rather suggests that I should add the column "H@Sketch1".
The Help is useless here, all it says about the Configuration Manager is
"To rename a feature or sketch:
Right-click the name in the column header and click Rename.
Type a new name.
That doesn't help at all, it just renames the dimension to "H@Sketch1" again.
So please tell me what the proper procedure to rename a dimension is, to get a good looking design table on the drawing.
Thanks a lot in advance!
