The Custom Properties section provides the ability to capture and create custom properties which you want to drive in a part, assembly, or drawing.
To capture an existing custom property, check the check box next to the custom property's name.
To uncapture a custom property, uncheck the check box next to the custom property's name.
To create a new custom property and capture it in one step, type a name into the create text box at the bottom of the custom properties list, and click "Create"
Certain custom properties have special meaning in DriveWorks:
|DWColor (or DWColour)||For a part, building a rule for this custom property enables the model's color and illumination properties to be controlled.|
|DWMaterial||For a part, building a rule for this custom property enables the model's material to be controlled.|
|DWTexture||For a part, building a rule for this custom property enables the model's texture to be controlled.|
DriveWorks Quick Tips
Custom properties allow you to control the custom properties within a part, assembly, or drawing. We can control anything from text to be displayed, to the colour of the part. Here, we control the colour of a chair, as well as the description and title on the drawing.
DriveWorks Quick Tips are a series of 1 minute videos, available on YouTube, that explain specific functionality. View all Quick Tips
Provide the ability to store meta-data within the model or drawing.
