Configurations in Toolbox

Question asked by Tim Cochrane on Feb 22, 2013

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:

 

46 Feb. 22 10.42 tcochrane.jpg

 

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?


Thanks

 

Tim
