Linking Text to a spreadsheet or cell for extrude/cut in solid body

I am looking for a way to use a spreadsheet or a variable syntax that will allow me to use in sketchs for the purpose of extrude/cut solid bodies. This is used for 3D Sand Mold design where customers require the part #, revision number on every solid body. Designs can end up with a mold that has 15 solid bodies that require a single text change.

 

 

Currently I manually update all the inidivudal sketches. I am hoping someone knows a way of similar to solidworks handles this issue, see attach youtube video https://youtu.be/nMghksgTP0Y

 

thanks!

Robot surprised  OH HECK YES!......I would love to see this capability added, and to "vanilla" Solid Edge,....NOT by way of an add-in, or macro!

So, SE just needs to add the ability to drive profile text with property data? Sounds good. You wonder why it has this ability with most text related commands but not others. Who's writing an ER? Smiley Happy

Nice try. But this particular is a non-issue for me. Maybe the SE development gods are watching.

What is an ER?

An "ER" is an Enhancement Request,....a process available to those on active maintenance, that communicate such topics as these, to GTAC (Global Technical Access Center), either directly, or via their reseller.

Update I called GTAC, rep said immediately they didn't know if an ability to do this exists, but would research, if it doesn't exist will create a ER.

Great....when you have been advised an ER number, please post it back here, so others who see value in it, can be added to the stack.
