Custom Properties

You can add custom properties to Toolbox and apply them to individual components or to all components in a standard.

You can create text properties, list properties, or material properties.

Once you create a property, you can apply it to an entire standard, category, or type, or an individual component. For text configuration-specific properties, you can type values directly in the configurations table. When you create a part in SolidWorks with that property, you can type or select a value in the PropertyManager.

To apply a custom property to a standard, select the standard in the left pane and select the property in the right pane.
