Inserting a Design Table Automatically

You can select Auto-create in the Design Table PropertyManager to automatically insert a design table.

To have the SOLIDWORKS software insert a design table automatically:

  1. In a part or assembly document, click Design Table (Tools toolbar) or Insert > Tables > Design Table.
  2. In the PropertyManager, under Source, select Auto-create.
  3. Set the Edit Control settings and Options, as desired.
  4. Click .
    Depending on the settings you selected, a dialog box may appear that asks which dimensions or parameters you want to add.

    An embedded worksheet appears in the window, and the SOLIDWORKS toolbars are replaced with Excel toolbars.

    Cell A1 identifies the worksheet as Design Table for: model_name.

  5. Click anywhere outside of the worksheet (but in the graphics area) to close the design table.
