Custom Properties in Weldments

In a weldment part, the custom properties for the weldments feature and for the cut list represent a different list from the custom properties that are stored at the document level.

The default location for the Weldment Property File is:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SolidWorks\SolidWorks version\lang\language\weldments\weldmentproperties.txt

There is no Application Data folder in the Microsoft® Windows® 7 operating system.

You can change the location of the list in File Location Options.

The profile library parts may carry any commonly used custom properties. For example, profiles supplied with the SolidWorks application include the custom property Description.

In case of naming conflicts between the weldment feature and the weldment profile, the profile name takes precedence.
You can use Property Tab Builder to create custom tabs for weldments.
