I'm wondering, is there a way to use "if empty" on solidworks custom properties?
I ask because, for example, we have a custom property names "Treatment".
If I design a part that does not need any treatment, then on the drawing, the box in the title block simlpy shows:
Essentially, it's just blank, and I find this ambiguous. I would like it to display
Then of course if there is a treatment specified, it would display:
Treatment: 48-50 HRC
or whatever the treatment is.
I thought of 2 ways of doing this:
1) Use a "If empty" type equation on the drawing sheet format. I've never heard of such a functionality, so I don't know how feasible this is.
2) Set the default value for Treatment property to be "n/a", however I don't see any ways of setting a default value in the Custom Property Tab Builder.
Any insights on how to implement either of these solutions would be great.
