2001 Parameter Question


New member

I am looking for a parameter that will enable me to automatically display the generic model name in a family table. The parameter &model_name - will display the file name of a family member. I would like to display the generic and instance names simultaneously on a drawing.

Thanks in advance,

Is there a way to do this automatically?

Is there a way to automatically get the session ID of the generic?

Not really an automatic way but...

If you already have multiple models (generic & instances) in a drawing.

You can set current model to generic and create &model_name note, then Pro/E will automatically assign the session ID.

Then set current model to next instance and do the same.
