When a name you type in the ECAD Property Name column matches an ECAD file property name, the software creates a custom property of the same name for the SolidWorks model, specifying the SolidWorks custom property value with the corresponding ECAD file property value. When your ECAD Property Name value does not match an ECAD file property name, the software creates a custom property for the SolidWorks model, setting the SolidWorks custom property value as the value you type in the Default Value column.
