Change cut list folder names
SOLIDWORKS Forums
3 months ago

I'm using SW2018 SP2.0

 

My workflow for weldment parts is to rename the folders so that I can use that value in the cut list table and view labels etc.  The name I give them is based on the project number.   10583-02-01, 10583-02-02, etc. 

 

My issue is that when I copy the design for a new project, Pack & Go will rename the files for me, but because the cut list folders aren't linked to anything, they don't change to the new project number. 

 

Question #1: Is there a way to link the cut list folder names to a value (like the file name) so that they would automatically update when copied?

 

Question #2: If I'm stuck changing the cut list items in the part, is there a way to change them automatically / all at once?  I tried 'Find and Replace' but that only works for Detailing Text.

Re: Change cut list folder names

I'm not sure if you can link to a property other than description. So that might call for a macro to rename them based on the active filename.
