Setting a variable text

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello,

 

I have a typical file, which I copy every time and make changes on it.

In order to tell apart each copy, I want to mark every part with its own marking. This marking needs to be physical - that means a serial number on the metal, which will be cutouted afterwards.

 

I don't want to do it manually by SolidWorks for each file, and I understand there's no way to edit text sketch through the API.

What other options are possible for this kind of task?

 

The best way would be - creating a text in SolidEdge - setting it as any variable (I couldn't find such option), and programattically change the variable for every file, in order to change the text. Is that possible?

 

Thanks.

There is no way to do that AFAIK.

 

You should open an IR to allow the use of property texts inside a Text profile, just like in Callouts.
