How to add a part length to a part name
I often use extruded aluminium lengths to build machine
enclosures for customers, and when I have finished the design I export the
model as a Parasolid.
When designing the model the length of each extrusion is defined by a Configuration variable.
My clients need to have the length of each extrusion in the part name so that they know what to order, for example, “Alprofil 40 x 40 Light L1000”, where L1000 is the length in mm. Is there any way to append L1000 automatically to the Part Name?
I appreciate that this will have to be done using FeatureScript and would appreciate any help.
