change date in drawing


New member

I've to make a program, where some dimensions of the design are variable. So for each client, the component can choose other dimensions. But then, the date in the drawings, has to be the date of the day they are printed. I tried already &todays_date, but that's not sufficiant. Does someone know a solution for this ?

Add the date parameter to the program.

date = string

/* enter todays date

Make sure the drawing format reads the correct model parameter and not a drawing parameter. It might be easier to create a new format for program drawings.
