Tube Dimensions into Custom Properties

Question asked by Erik Roy on Oct 21, 2013

Hello,

 

I have created some tubes using Solidworks routing and I need to create drawings for manufacture. The drawings must have a table containing:

a) the overall length of the tube,

b) the location of each bend from a baseline point on the tube (ie: not the distance between each bend),

c) the angle of each of these bends, and the radius of the bends.

 

I thought the best way to generate this table in a drawing was to assign custom properties in the model, however I cannot figure out how to assign the length from the baseline to each bend. In other words, in my attached photo (please excuse my poorly drawn markup), I need to be able to assign the length shown as B to a custom property. Can you help me do this?

If this is not possible, is there alternative way to create a table in a drawing with the requirements I listed above?
