Lenth property in sub-weldment cutlists

Question asked by Samuel Leith on Nov 27, 2013

Hello,

has any one of you ever noticed that the length value in the cutlist of a sub-weldment drawing often does not evaluate until the parent weldment is closed?

 

I spent about 3 hours troubleshooting the reason why Length@@@ would display in the cutlist instead of the actual length value.

 

Turns out the solution is quite simple: close the parent weldment, and CTRL-Q the drawing of the sub-weldment with the cutlist.

 

 

Anyway I just wanted to put this out there so that someone else doesn't have to waste time looking for the reason why the length of each cutlist item isn't showing.

I'm using SW2012 SP2 - I wonder if this is still happening on more recent SW installations...
