Re: SheetMetal - automatic inclusion of bend angle data?

Thanks Bruce,

Although laborious when done for many bends I think this has the makings of a script. We'll keep working on it.


Here is one way. > 1. In the model, display all annotations. > 2. In the model, create a note and instead of typing anything onto the note > entry field, click on the angular dimension for the first bend. > 3. Delete the note if you wish. > 4. You will see a text string representing the bend info. > 5. Copy this text to the clipboard. > 6. In the drawing, create a note describing the bend direction (BEND UP or > BEND DOWN) for the bend you just copied the bend data for and paste the > previously copied text string to the end of this note. > 7. Repeat for any other bends. > 8. The bend angle annotions will then be associative to the model.

I already have written a script to do something like this, I can mail it to you... You may have to modify the script to suit your requirements.

Just let me know!

Vinodh, thank you very much for the script. It is 90% of the way to what we were after!

You've saved us many hours.
