Using Custom and Default File Properties in Equations

You can include custom and default file property values in equations for parts and assemblies.

To add custom and default file properties to equations:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Equations OTTool_Equations_Tools.gif (Tools toolbar).
    • Click Tools > Equations.
    • Right-click the Equations FM_equations.gif folder in the FeatureManager design tree, and select Manage Equations.
  2. Select the Equation View equations_view_icon.
  3. Select an equation, global variable or dimension.
  4. After = (equal sign), add a Custom Property, Function or File Property from the flyout menu.
    Icons differentiate the variables and file properties:
    Global Variable
    Custom Property
    Default Property
  5. Click OK to close the dialog box.
