Is there a faster way to create links between file than one a time.
My links are from assembly parts and the assembly to a draft file. I typically need to create about 20 links from each file. Right now I open the part, copy link from the variable, then go to the draft file, create a variable name and past the link.
Is there a way to do this faster for multiple links?
I would also like to be able to copy multiple lines of variable equiasions from one draft file to another. Same issue. Right now I re-type in about 50 lines of equasions creating a template that have already been entered into another file. I would like to just grab the 50 specific lines, copy and past.
Why are you copying the variables from part to draft? What is that done for?
Variable I copy:
plane position from assembly into draft to calulate volumes
Thickness and Bend radius form each part into draft to help calulate bend tables that include back gage and stick out on my custom annotation version of bend tables
I also copy the actual part volumes from each part to be subtracted from usable tank volumes
In general im making box sheet metal tanks.
Just a weird thought 12gage. Could you create a reference part based on the inside dimensions of your tank, occurence its weight and visibility out of your assembly/draft with the occurence properties and then use the volume property from that part file in your draft? I might be over simplifying your issue and how you need to calculate the volume, but thought I would suggest this to see if it might work...
