I am stamping part number into sheet metal and would like to automate it as much as possible.
Right now I am manually typing the part number into a text box and placing it where I want it at the DXF level. I have a drawing template that I set up for making a DXF with a text box I just have to edit and place.
We name our file the same part number that the customer send them to us with but we add a few letters in front of the part number to distinguish ours models from theirs.
I want to be able to link the text box I have set up in the DXF template to the file name but I want to be able to exclude the letters we add to the beginning of the part name. If I can accomplish this then I would just have to move the text box around to where I need it.

Does anyone have any way to accomplish this?
