Does any one know how to add the text string used in a cut or protrusion into the famly table. I want to be able to change the text of the cut by changing it in the famly table. Such as size or other info
Create a parameter called "name" or anything you want to call it. Create it as a "string" parameter. It will prompt you for what you want to enter as the string.
When creating the sketch, there is a pick at the top for "Enter text manually" or "Use parameter". Select the Use parameter and then select the button "Select parameter" which will open the parameter dialog box. From there pick on the string you want and hit the button "Insert selected". It will put a string in the text box that reads ¶meter name.
Opps, sorry I missed that version thing. Can't remember how it was in WF1.
Try this. Create the parameter as was detailed. When it prompts you for the text string in sketcher, enter ¶meter name. Don't forget the apersand and make sure the parameter name is what you created.
If that works, you can add the parameter to a family table. Or go to 2.0, it's better, has a little more functionality, less buggy and muchmore stable.
