I've been searching this answer for more than 3 hours and still no luck. Does anyone know if Properties builder have any expression for the description in the configuration properties? As shown in the picture:

Let's say we have a part document with two configurations "first" and "second". Let's assume we have some feature with a dimension (e.g. height). We can link the dimension to the configuration of the part, i.e. in configuration "first" it might be 80 and in configuration "second" it might be 60.

Just upgraded to 2017 and now all the configurations in part files are sorted by History by default. We use configurable files for bearings, fasteners, etc and to select the configuration we want to use in an assembly is horrible. So far it looks like we need to check out, open, change the sort order, save and check back in every file to get this corrected.

Is it possible to concatenate multiple properties within the custom property builder? With the custom property tab builder, I have tried using $PRP:"SW-File Name"$PRP:"SW-Configuration Name" within a text box. It doe not evaluate in the custom property task pane within SW, yet it does if you go into the file properties window.

a couple of releases ago we did enhance the equation functionality with the capability that you can suppress/unsuppress features/components through equations. I.e. it is possible to use conditional statements to check whether a condition is true or not and suppress/unsuppress features/components based on the result. Now I am wondering who is using this capability for what purpose and which enhancements in this area you can imagine that would help you to get your job done easier?

I have had to endure this problem for a few years now. I have been able to do a work around by not using a design table in these conditions. Situation now is I am having major issues with BOM Configuration Column's Part Numbers appearing out of numerical order.

In my work we have some assemblies that are all very similar minus the change to a few parts here and there. I built 64 configurations using a design table to represent every possible way we could build a certain assembly but when I try to make a drawing for that assembly it uses data from the @ parts card. It's very annoying and I can't get our title block to reference the configuration in the drawing view to import it's description and part number. Currently I have tried;

We created a web page with graphic representations of our models so we can drag and drop them into assemblies easily and visually. The images are linked to the file location of the part or assembly. Each model has its own file. If there are configurations (finish codes) for that model, it will ask which configuration to use when placing it into the assembly.

So, not sure if this has been a topic before or not, but I've been using SW since '97, and while back then the design table was a god send...it's seriously fallen to the wayside. For a couple of years I used Autodesk Inventor...and while there are pro/con's between SW and Inventor, one that stand out as a definite winner was Inventor iPart feature, which is SW design table. The design table(DT) in SW is rudimentary and if you create a DT and then make additions to your part, you now have to

How do I change/control the configuration of a part inserted into another part with a macro? I've tried recording a macro when I RMB the inserted part in the FM and go to 'List External Ref' and then changing the configuration from there. However, the recorded macro doesn't retain any code for those steps and cannot be run back.

Opening a design table to edit it when Excel is open also, causes Excel to immediately close. I've had this problem for some time now but just decided to ask the question if anyone has the same problem and/or a solution. It's quite aggravating and causes loss of anything in the Excel spreadsheet to be lost if it hadn't been already saved.

I am working on an assembly with eight total configurations, and there are five parts on certain configurations that, some if not all mates are suppressed. I went into the "configurations properties" like some suggested, to uncheck the "suppress new features", but none of those options were selected. This only happens in certain configurations, and it seems no matter how many times I repair the mates it still wont take.

I have several hardware files that we use based on design tables. I would like to show these in their drawings, but some of our files have over 100 configurations. I can adjust what it shown in the tables via the design table in the model, I can adjust the overall size of the table in the drawing (often making it too small to read), and I can import the design table into the drawing with no issue, but I would like to be able to split the table as one would do with a BOM table so that it fits on

I have made a wire sketch and design table to adjust key dimensions on the sketch. It works fine until I attach Structural Members to it. Does anyone know why it stops working? Is it possible to attach a profile from structural members, or will I have to manually draw every profile on the sketch?

I would like to have a different unit system for my drawings than what I use when I am designing. In my drawings I would like to have architectural units (ft-in fractions) in my drawings, but when I am designing I want to use straight inches with decimals. It seems that I only know how to change the unit system for my entire work environment. Is there a way to change the unit system for file types (drawing, part, assembly, etc.)?

I have an assembly that I have imported (stl file) and after assigning the material properties to all the parts I am getting a crazy high weight. So to get to the bottom of this I wanted to make a bill of materials table to display the mass of each part so I can chase down the offending parts, but when I go to do that I find that all the parts don't have the properties set to display mass and the only way I have found to add mass to that list is to go into each part individually and add the

I add new configurations to my models. There are times I would like to reorder it in the configuration manager. Example, I add different sizes with an associated -01, -02 etc number. Then I may add a size with a next dash number.

Wondering if anyone can provide an explanation and ideally a solution to this problem. I have a externally linked excel spreadsheet to my model in solidworks as a design table. it is saved as a .xls (97-2003 Worksheet) as i have a Macro module with the spreadsheet required to determine the some of the results that form part of the design table.
