Cut-List Properties Dialog Box

The Cut-List Properties dialog box lets you manage, edit, and view all cut list item properties.

To display this dialog box:

In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click a Cut-List-Item in a weldment part or multibody sheet metal part and click Properties.

You can modify the Cut-List Properties dialog box by resizing it or changing column widths, to make information visible that would otherwise be truncated.

The software saves your changes with the active document. Changes you make are specific to the active document and do not affect other documents.

Cut List Summary Tab

This tab lets you navigate to any of the cut list item folders.

Cut-List-Item <n> Lets you select the cut list item for which you want to show properties.
Property Name Applies a property to the selected cut list item. You can type or select a property.
Type Categorizes the type of property.
Value / Text Expression Lets you specify a value for the property that is compatible with Type.
Evaluated Value Calculates the value of the property.
Delete Deletes the properties from the current cut list item.
Exclude from cut list Omits the cut list folder from a cut list.
BOM quantity Links the property value to the Quantity column in a BOM. (It does not affect cut list tables.) For example, if the weldment has several structural members that are the same size, you may want to know how much (in length) of the item you need, not the quantity (number of items) you need.

When you select an item in BOM quantity, the value is calculated as: Number of instances * Item in BOM quantity

BOM quantity contains only those items listed in Property Name.

In the Bill of Materials PropertyManager, you must set BOM Type to Indented to list Cut-List-Items individually in the BOM.
Edit List Lists custom properties that you defined for Property Name.

Properties Summary Tab

This tab shows all of the unique cut list item properties in a weldment part. You can click each property to display the property's value for every item in the cut list. If a cut list item does not have a unique property assigned, it appears as <not specified>.

Property List Lists all of the unique weldment cut list properties. Even if only one cut list item has a specific property applied to it, the property is listed here.
Property Name Lists the Cut-List-Items in the model.
Type Categorizes the type of property.
Value / Text Expression Lets you specify a value for the property that is compatible with Type.
Evaluated Value Calculates the value of the property.

Cut List Table Tab

This tab shows a preview of how the cut list will look in a drawing based on the Table Template. Click PM_Table_Browse_Template.gif to select a different template.

If you excluded an item from the cut list, it appears as struck-out text in this tab.
