Add sketch text to design table
Tips and Tricks • Micah • 10 June 2015
Below was a question I’ve been asked on support numerous times;
Is it possible to add an array of text/labels into a design table. For example I want to create dozens of identical parts but with a unique extruded boss label driven by a design table.
- You can create a design table, then in File/Properties/Configuration Specific enter a property, choose text, and write a note.
- Next; create a sketch in your part and use the Text tool to place your desired text onto the model.
- Click to link the note to the newly created configuration specific property, in step 1.
- Create a Design Table, you can control the property value using the column heading $prp@property where “property” is looking for the title of the configuration specific custom property EXACTLY as it appears in the File/Properties/Configuration Specific.
