Part Mass and Surface area on Drawing

Creator
Creator

Hello All,

I am trying to get the part mass and surface area on the drawing template.

To acheive this, I created a custom attribute in the seed part called My_mass and linked it to the NX_Mass attribute.

Unfortunately, the value does not change when a end user created a new part using this seed part.

Refer to attached video for details.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for achieving this?

Regards,

Rushi

I jsut went thru this a few months ago, and it is frustrating.  Have you tried adding your new My_Mass to the attribute template?  As I recall, I had to to that, for the new attributes to hang around, after deleting the dummy body.

Hello Dave,

I have tried both ways, creating the attribute from File Properties and from the attribute template.

Somehow, the expression linking the NX_Mass to My_Mass disappears.

Is there any setting in the template part to save expressions/formula even if they are broken?

Regards,

Rushi
