I have to make one single drawing out of the assembly of some parts, that each of them have different configurations. I need to use a Note to indicate the name of each part, but the problem will be that in the Note setting, you can hyperlink it only to the file name or material or description, but not the configurations, so I could not make a distinction between these parts in this drawing so far.
Is there a method to do so ?
Try using balloons, set the balloon type to 'none' and the balloon text to 'file name'. You can also link in custom properties and a bunch of other things.
Configurations have been problematic for me on more than one occasion therefore I tend to prefer individual parts, and limit configuration use to assemblies where I'm simply suppressing or un-suppressing the individual parts.
I'm sure there's some configuration maniacs out there that can do much better at it than me, that's just been my experience and usual preference.
Sorry, I misread your original question. You'll still use the balloon, but it will be set to 'custom properties'.
But first, go into each parts and click 'file properties' and select 'configuration specific' tab to define properties that override the default properties.
Then go back into the drawing, and in the balloon settings use 'custom properties' and then select your custom property out of the drop down menu. I'll add a second snapshot.
sure, your answer was great, The only dangerous part is to be sure of those properties that override the default properties, cause something that might change in a configuration and I am not aware of it, If I don't name and refer it properly, that's why I doubted shouold I use this method or create different parts instead of configurations?
Thank you , but this setting gives the same reason of the Note : One single file name for all of the configurations
Click on pictures to see them entirely.
Personally, but this is perhaps not the meaning of your question, when I would do a drawing for each configurations of the same coin, I keep the name of the piece and I highlight in my cartridge name the configuration for the manufacturer understands the difference room.
