Have been serching the forums but could not find any solution on how to get the overal length of
a profile and have it put in as a Note in a drawing template, is it possible?
What do you mean by "overal length"? All sketch line in the feature or one segment?
When I have two of the same structural member separated from eachother I only get the length of one.
In a cutlist bom it will show QTY 2 and the length of 1 (Length 800). I would like to get the total length of the 2 (800+800=1600) to show in a custom property so that I can put it as a note in a drawing, If it Is possible?
In the cut-list property, is there a value for QTY like "QTY@@@Cut-List-Item2@skiva test.SLDPRT"? If so I can use an equation in the part file to show the total length in a custom property.
You may check out this solution using BOM tables instead of Cut-List tables (I don't like this solution but its possible) -
And I also suggest you to check an AddOn that my company develops which may help you exporting your cut-list data to Excel file, AutoStruct.
I also found this link-
Which explains how to use equations in cut-list tables. You can use this and save the Weldment Table as a template so you will always get it.
Do you have multibody part with 2 structural members in one cut-list item and you want to add a Cut-List table to the drawing with a 3rd column that says "QTY*Length"? I'm not sure if it's possible without some macro. Is that the case?
Thanks for the response
Yes it is a multibody part with 2 structural members in one cut-list item, My Idea was to have a note that only displays the length so i can fix it in a drawing template and not use a Bom table, any other information of the structual member is not importand in this case.
