SolidWorks Video Tip: 2009 Title Block & Custom Properties

I’m sure if you have read any of the SolidWorks Blogs in the past couple of weeks, you have probably heard of the new Custom Properties Task Pane window in SolidWorks 2009.  The interface for this window is completely customizable.  SolidWorks includes an application called Property Tab Builder that allows you to design the interface so that you can enter custom properties in Parts, Assemblies, and Drawings in a manner that best matches your company’s engineering processes.  A screen shot of the Property Tab Builder is shown below.

Some GREAT news with this is that you can COMBINE this new functionality with the new Title Block Wizard in Drawings.  This Video Tip focuses more on how the two can interact together rather than how to build the Task Pane or Title Block Window.  I will have posts in the coming weeks that will reveal more details on how you can setup these new features.  Click the image below to watch the video.

Stay tuned….more to come!
