How Can I Map a Configuration Variable to a Custom Property
I have parts that have a configuration variable defining their lengths. I need to get their lengths into OpenBOM. I'm pretty sure that I can get the lengths into OpenBOM if I send OpenBOM a custom property containing the length. I just don't know how to link my "Length" custom property to a configuration variable. How might I do this? When setting up the custom property, I noticed that there was a button that said "Select computed part property function." This button allowed my to select a featurescript. I assume this allows me to write a featurescript to define the value of the configured property. What would this look like? Can I directly write to my "Length" property in the featurescript? Does the featurescript need to return a value that will then get assigned to my "Length" property? How do I reference the featurescript ID associated with a configuration variable? This needs to work generally for all my parts across many part studios that have configuration variables determining their lengths.
