I'm trying to automate the part numbering in toolbox. Not sure if I can do it.
I'm mainly looking for a starting point.
Our screw/bolt standard looks like this:
DIAMETER-THREADXLENGTH-HEAD STYLE-TYPE OF FASTENER-DRIVE(or POINT)-MATERIAL-PLATING-OTHER
I have tables that drive this stuff. I have created custom properties that have drop downs which will pull this stuff.
It looks like this now:
The resulting Configuration is "B18.3.5M - 3 x 0.5 x 6 Socket FCHS -- 6NM3-0.5XFOCSHXUN12"
The configuartion name that I want is "M3-0.5XFOCSHXUN12".
I know part of the data, Size, Thread, Length are already in the screw. I need some additional custom properties to make it work.
Is there a way to do this without too much of a headache?
