Being prompted for a material at part start up


New member
Is there a way to setup the pro/E start part template so that as soon as you have entered the name of your part, you are prompted for the material?.. which would then assign a predetermined thickness (sheet metal part).
You could make a mapkey that starts a new part, then asks the user for the part material / thickness...
