Title Block Tables

You can create title block tables in parts and assemblies and link the table information to the configuration-specific properties of the document.

Title block tables behave in a similar way to tables in drawings. As with other SolidWorks tables, you can customize title block table templates and save them for future use.

  1. In a part or assembly, click Title Block Table (Table toolbar) or Insert > Table > Title Block Table.
  2. In the PropertyManager, do one of the following:
    • To use a template to create the table, under Table Template, click Open template for Title Block Table , in the dialog box select a template, and click Open.
    • To create a title block table without using a template, under Table Size, select the number of Columns and Rows for the table.
  3. If you are creating the table without using a template, under Border, do one of the following:
    • Click Use document settings to use the border settings stored with the part or assembly.
    • Clear Use document settings and select a line weight for the Box Border and Grid Border .
  4. Click .
  5. In the graphics area, drag and click to position the table.

    The table appears translucent, so you can see the model.

  6. To size the table proportionally:
    1. Move the pointer over the upper left corner and click .
    2. In the PropertyManager, under Title Block Table Scaling, use the dial control to modify the table size.

      You can also change the borders.

    3. Click .

    You can also drag a corner of the table in the graphics area to resize the table, but the font size does not change proportionally.

  7. Edit the table using the table cell, row, and column toolbars that display when you click in a cell.

    See Table Cell, Row, or Column Toolbars.

  8. Right-click in the table to display a menu that lets you:
    • Add and manipulate columns and rows
    • Save the table as a template
    • Open the table in a separate window
    • Print the table and model
      To print the table alone, open it in a separate window and print from that window.
