I have been given a task of trying to figure out how to use our part number, revision, and description from my Solidworks file to populate a "Drawing Title Block" and "BOM" in my drawings and assemblies.
I want my part file "12345-123-01 Rev01 (or"A") Start Part.sldprt" or sections of this file name to populate the BOM and Title blocks automatically.
We use the "Summary Information Custom" Tab to Fill-in our part info manually but I want this to be populated automatically.
I want the first 12 characters of the file name to fill in the "Drawing Number" Value tab, the next 5 characters to fill in "Revision" Value tab and the last sting of characters to fill in the "Description" Value tab as shown below.
Any help or a push in the right direction with some literature on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.
