    Part Properties

    Peter Stenabaugh

      I think that a nice to have feature would be to have ALL the properties of a part displayed at one time - one place.  Currently if you have custom properties set for a part, you need to open the part to be able to view the settings, or make any changes to them.  Alternatively you can also right click a part in an assembly and select 'Properties' but this doesn't reveal very much information.


      What I am suggesting is that when you right click a part in an assembly and select "Properties' that you should be able to see, and edit any and all the properties related to that part.  this could allow you to set or revise anything related to the part, including all the features listed in the custom properties tab, which is at the part level only.

          I've recently had some grief about this feature, or lack thereof.  Please vote for this SPR: 617160.

            Peter,  I currently use that feature with SolidWorks - it's called a custom BOM.  I have a BOM called ALL which includes over 30 columns of input.  From the BOM you can click on any cell and open the part from there to make your changes, and by having a bom like that allows you to pick up any discrepancies.  Also SW does have Assembly Visualization, however I found you could only have like 6 or 7 columns, that works really well if you have only a few custom properties.


            Also, if you use Custom Property Tab Builder, you can set it up that you only have a few inputs to make
