Uploading an Inventor file. Part names are not the same as a specified Part Number in the BOM / properties. Would like to use the Item Part Number as the default balloon ID ? Should the Part Number in the Inventor iProperties get uploaded with the file ? I watched a video related to a similar question but there is no ‘Properties’ selection when trying to add a link to create a custom item balloon toolbox item.
We are looking at this and will come back when we have an answer. If it is possible to send a small inventor assembly with properties so we can check we are looking at the same thing then that would help us (to firstname.lastname@example.org).
Include Properties is checked. It seems that only properties set in the ‘Custom’ tab are uploaded and they can be used in a table. Hoping that properties contained in the ‘Project’ tab can be uploaded as Part Number is a main property used in the BOM.
So currently the Inventor addin only copies custom properties. I have logged bringing Project properties as an enhancement but for now, maybe creating a custom property in your template may get round the problem, see image…
Yes I have been doubling up the Part Number into custom properties, but good news your adding the Project properties will improve the workflow. Thanks !
