Frames: using "Tag Profiles" with a configured part studio

Lucas_KuhnsLucas_Kuhns Member, csevp Posts: 88 PRO
We have our own profile generator that can be used on the Beams (now Frames) feature. Is it possible to use the "Tag Profile" feature on a configured studio like this? I would like to be able to set properties for different combinations of configurations so it shows up nicely in our cutlist.

    Without wanting to customize the tag feature, I used standard for my profile code. I also setup my profiles static in a list. A list input will allow configuring the standard and description inputs of the tag. The other parts remain out of bounds for configuring sadly (possibly can be strong armed in featurescript?). Seeing someone else wishing for the same things I'm starting to feel the coding tingles rising up.
    The description input is text but there maybe a way an equation that can be used there. I haven't tried but I'm feeling not.  If yes it would be something like (#length ~ " x " ~ #width) the "~" concatenates.  You will probably want to wrap each variable in roundtoprecision(variable / unit, decimal places) otherwise you get a meter value with an enormous amount of decimal places.
