Is there a way to set a Property with the name of the FeatureScript a part was created by?

timo_schmidtimo_schmid Member Posts: 36 EDU
I have a featurescript that produces different parts, and I usually apply it multiple times in one part studio. 
When exporting the BOM it would be great to have a Propertiy that tells me with which FS a part was created (e.g. "script name" 1, "script name" 2, "script name" 3 etc.) 
Is there a way to add this as a property directly from the FeatureScript?
Thanks for your help,
Timo

    Yes, i believe it is setproperty()

    But i don't know about adding an automatic number behind it. 
    Unless you set a variable in the context of the partstudio and have the fs increment that. Each time

    Hi @john_mcclary
    Thanks for your answer. I think think this sounds promising, but I don't know how I can set a variable in the context of a partstudio (or how I could increment the variable from within the featureScript)?
    It would be awesome if you could quickly explain how this can be done.
    Thanks,
    Timo

    Thanks a lot for writing the example Script! It was very helpful.
    I'll see if I figure it out with the testing, and otherwise it's fine with the second feature.
    Cheers,
    Timo
