I am working on a project where I have 8 part specifications with tabulated drawings that have similar but varying materials, heat treatments, and plating requirements. The part geometry is simple and the FOP handles each iteration beautifully!
What I need is to create a text/string variable containing the part revision, material, heat treat, and plating within the FOP member definition. I cannot see how to do this.
Currently I am setting the material and part revsion in the Member part file. With having hundreds of part numbers I dred the day of having a revision. I will have to open each part file to change these items instead of managing all from the master FOP list.
Is there a way to pass string data through the part files to drawings?
@PM-DC There is no way to pass any of that through to the members however if you open the Master and then run Property Manager (App button, Info) you can edit the file properties of the master and all the members in a spreadsheet like form.
As for your last question about passing string data from part files to draft, this can be done with "Property Text" referencing the part's File Properties.
