Custom Properties

The custom properties section provides the ability to capture and create custom properties which you want to drive in a part, assembly, or drawing.

If you have a lot of custom properties in your model, you can use the search box to filter the list of custom properties. You can also tick the check box at the bottom of the list to filter the list so that it only shows captured custom properties.

Capture a Custom Property

To capture an existing custom property, check the check box next to the custom property's name.

Uncapture a Custom Property

To uncapture a custom property, uncheck the check box next to the custom property's name.

If you uncapture a custom property and save your group, the action cannot be undone. Furthermore, if you have already created any rules for the uncaptured custom property, then they will be lost. Before uncapturing a custom property, you may wish to make a copy of your group and projects.

Create a Custom Property

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"

DriveWorks Quick Tips: Custom Properties

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.
