Blank Drawing Data Cards????

Having issues getting information into a drawing data card even though the titleblock is filled out and the part data card is completely filled out?

Well PDMWorks Enterprise 2008 has the answer.

Just follow these steps:

Create an additional block/attribute mapping for just the drawing extension (slddrw). Use the block name “$PRPSHEET” (note that it must be spelled with capital letters) and the attribute name should be the property you want to retrieve from the model, for example “Description”. Note to keep the existing description custom property mapping for the drawing as well. (i.e. CustomProperty/Description).

NOTES

• The PDMWorks Enterprise SolidWorks add-in must be enabled.

• The linked properties will be copied / updated each time the drawing is saved from within SolidWorks.
