can I define custom property to get sheet metal properties such as bounding box area as custome property and how?
See the Help file for Viewing Sheet Metal Properties
I need to to get "Bounding box" as file property from the cutlist properties,
for example you can define "Thickness@Sheet-Metal1" as a property,
but you can not define XX"Bounding Box@Sheet-Metal1"XX
See if this helps;
I will try and tell you
this is vbproj macro VB.NET, which I have problem with, I prefer swp macros as I have good experince with Visual basic 6
Try these macro
Bounding Box macro
Precision Bounding Box
and modify as required.
I tried the first macro: it will make configuration specific 3D Bounding Box, we need 2D flatten Bounding Box.
the second link doesnt work.
I need something dynamic (if possible) for sheet metal parts in flattened size (WxL) no need for third dimension, and we need it to change if I changed the dimensions of the part.
I wish if there is a way to read directly from the cutlist property bounding box directly as equation or property.
"SW-Bounding Box Area@@@Cut-List-Item1@XXX.SLDPRT"
can you help me to find something?
I am thinking in another scenario as last option:
to make excel macro that will work on XLS saved BOM and combine rows to remove indented tree for sheet metal parts, see this thread:
You can modify the macro to flatten the part first and then add the properties. Also the codes can be modified to add custom properties.
what is the issue with second link, it is working fine for me.
We used to draw bounding box to get these properties in SW2010,
Starting from 2011, it is driven automatically.
I need to read these cutlist properties and relate it at part level.
