Linking Text to its Part Name

[ Edited ]

I would like to have File names engraved in each part. What is the easiest way to link Text (Boolean subtraction feature) value to its File Name?

I see this required value is shown under "Displayed Part Properties->Displayed Part ->Part Name". How could I call in this Part Name Property to be the text value?

Create a string expression with the value as ug_askCurrentWorkPart()
Using the Text command, check "Reference Text" under the text entry field and then click "Select Expression".
Select the expression you created and hit OK and then place the text.  Example attached.

You are kidding! We have to make expressions to retrive values shown in Displayed Part Property->Part Name?

We created it in our model seed part, so it's available for all new parts.

If you clone a file that uses this expression, you will need to remember to run "update for external change" to update the expression (it won't update automatically). Smiley Sad

Really Cowski!? Thanks for the warning.  I see this method creating more problems than solutions.

Hi Mike,

Sorry i have no alternative for using TEXT for engraving but can you use PMI (PART IDENTIFICATION) note for placing the text on the part representing the part name.(if required only for drawing purpose. I know it can not be used for a engraving feature though)).

Best Regards
