How can i add length dimensions to a toolbox component, iex. pipe. Ive tried adding a reference dimension to my configuration and linking it to a custom property but my problem with that is the file is read only so every time i close solid works and reopen my drawings all my lengths have disappeared from my BOMS. Also i cannot take write access of the file to add this property in due to group policy at my work. I hope there is a way around this.
I could also just type in the information into the BOM but when i finish my model i intend to copy it and grow it from a 4000 to 6000 gal tank system and would like my lengths to update along with my changes to the model. Please help!!!
